Seth Rosin is a control-oriented collegiate right-handed starting pitcher from the University of Minnesota. Rosin originally came to Minnesota from Mounds View High School in Arden Hills, Minnesota, a northern suburb of the Twin Cities. As a very tall, developed arm, he was naturally scouted quite a bit in high school, but his rawness wasn’t appealing to most scouts, though the Twins felt it natural to select him in the twenty-eighth round of the 2007 draft due to his hometown ties. He didn’t sign and headed to play for the Golden Gophers, where he pitched in a swing role as a freshman with good success. He showed surprising control from the start, and when he stepped into the rotation as a sophomore, he continued to show his value as a strike-throwing pitcher. He continued his success as a junior with a career year, and he showed that he’s most successful when he goes right after hitters with strikes. Scouts think that his stuff and demeanor will allow him to be a number four starter or setup man at the pro level, but only if he keeps his current control and command levels. His fastball is a solid-average to above-average pitch that sits 90-92, touching 94, and he commands it in the strike zone, pounding the mitt over and over again. He’s efficient with an efficient delivery, so he projects for plus command and control heading forward. His breaking ball is an average curveball, and he throws a fringe-average changeup, so a lot of his value is due to his fastball command. Even with undeveloped secondary pitches, he’s expected to go in the fourth to seventh round range, perhaps a bit higher, as teams think he’ll sign quickly for slot money and move quickly through the minors.
