2014 MLB Draft: Southwest and Rockies

New, 2 comments

Injuries and lack of depth make this region less than impressive but there is still some talent.

Fedde has recently went down with an elbow issue and will need Tommy John but that doesn't change the top of this list. Verdugo is a two way talent that may be a hitter, may be a pitcher. There isn't a lot of depth here this year. Castellani and Peterson are intriguing projection arms.

If you appreciate my work and want more of it now and in the future, support me by purchasing the 2014 MLB Draft Book. It will be available between May 19th and May 30th. The longer it takes, the more that will be in it. It's $4.99. PDF only. Last year it was 101 pages and will be larger this year with articles and information.

Name POS hi lvl Floor Ceiling Bats Throws Height Weight Birthdate
Erick Fedde P JR 40 55 Right Right 6'3" 180 2/25/93
Late riser sits low to mid 90's and can hit 96. Can throw slider for strikes and as a chase pitch. Could have an average change. Mid rotation arm ceiling, may be reliver w/o good change.
Alex Verdugo RF HS 35 55 Left Left 6'1" 200 5/15/96
Smooth bat. Athletic delivery. Very good all around player. Not sure if he's a hitter or pitcher. Corner guy without big power. Mid rotation upside as a pitcher. Just a solid player. May be better off in college to find his spot.
Ryan Castellani P HS 35 55 Right Right 6'4" 195 4/1/96
Easy delivery. Clean and simple producing 89-91 MPH fastball and there is likely a few more ticks inthere. His breaking ball is slurvy but has a good change. More projection than now but I like him a lot.
Brandon Bonilla P JR 35 55 Right Left 6'4" 205 10/21/93
Big arm up to 97 from Bobby's son.
David Peterson P HS 30 50 Left Left 6'6" 230 9/3/95
Upper 80's velocity topping out at 90, so there has to be projection. Breaking ball shows two different shapes. Could call one a slider, one a curve. Both could be average. Change is his best secondary. Good athelte.
Gabriel Gonzalez P HS 30 50 Right Right 6'4" 200 8/16/96
Up to 94. Long arm action on the back side. Big potential.
Gerard Hernandez LF HS 30 50 Left Left 5'11" 195 10/16/95
Big time power hitter but he has a very long swing.
Francis Christy C J1 30 50 Left Right 6'2" 215 9/1/95
lh hitting, good oppo power, nice approach. Good approach. Good opposite field power
Max George 2B HS 30 45 Right Right 5'10" 170 4/7/96
Not big but big time bat speed. He can really hit
Austin Paschke LF FR Both Right 6'4" 215 4/20/1995
Cole Tucker SS HS Both Right 6'3" 175 7/3/96
long and thin. Projection, mediocre rh side, better LH
