2019 Draft
« on: December 05, 2018, 06:07:09 pm »
Six months and counting...

As it stands today (and this will change slightly depending on FA signings), the Astros will pick at:
  • #32 (1st round)
  • #69 (2nd round)
  • #80 (comp pick for Keuchel)
  • #111 (3rd round)
  • #143 (4th round)

MLB Pipeline came out with their first Top 50 Draft Prospect list. Some of the more interesting (including local guys) names who might be available when the Astros pick at #32:
  • LHP Nick Lodolo/Junior--the 6'6" Horned Frog likely gets picked quickly if he steps up his game this spring.
  • OF Jerrion Ealy/HSer--Ole Miss commit who also plays football which of course affects signability.
  • SS Braden Shewmake/Junior--the 6'4" Aggie and lefty swinger might not stick at shortstop.
  • OF JJ Bleday/Junior--another lefty swinger, the Vandy player has the arm for RF.
  • 1B Michael Busch/Junior--yet another lefty. Luhnow likes his Tarheels but might like this one more if he could play 2B or LF (which may be a possibility).
  • OF Matt Wallner/Junior--lefty hitter with arm for RF who currently patrols CF for Southern Miss.
  • OF Maurice Hampton/HSer--LSU commit who like Ealy has the football card to play.
  • SS Will Wilson/Junior--the NC Stater might have to shift to 2B.
  • SS Logan Davidon/Junior--the Clemson switch-hitter is likely to stick at SS. Wood bat struggles in the Cape though.
  • RHP Tyler Dyson/Junior--FB touching upper 90s but command/control and developing 3rd pitch needed.
  • 3B Brett Baty/HSer--lefty hitter out of Lake Travis HS is a Longhorn commit.
  • SS Matthew Lugo/HSer--the Carlos Beltran BB Academy product is a U of Miami commit.
  • OF Kyle Stowers/Junior--lefty swinger for Stanford has arm for right.
  • RHP Ryne Nelson/Junior--a two-way player for Oregon as an infielder/reliever, the hard-thrower moves into the starting rotation this spring.
  • RHP Matthew Thompson/HSer--one of two highly-rated Cypress Ranch HS pitchers who are Aggie commits.
  • RHP JJ Goss/HSer--the other.
  • 1B/OF Mike Toglia/Junior--will be one of the youngest college juniors at the time of the draft/switch-hitter/above average defender at 1B but may be able to play corner OF.
  • LHP Erik Miller/Junior--another Stanford Cardinal/has struggled in the CCBL.
  • 1B Logan Wyatt/Junior--lefty hitter for Louisville/great eye at plate/lotsa power/probably limited to 1B.
  • OF Will Robertson/Junior--lefty swinger for Creighton may be limited to left.
  • SS Nasim Nunez/HSer--superb defender/questionable bat/switch-hitter.

Others of note: SS Bobby Whitt, Jr (Colleyville Heritage HS), 3B Josh Jung (Texas Tech) and C Shea Langeliers (Baylor) are all projected to go in the first 10 picks.

BA's mock draft #1 says this guy to the Astros at #32:

  • 1B Michael Busch/Junior--yet another lefty. Luhnow likes his Tarheels but might like this one more if he could play 2B or LF (which may be a possibility).

.317/.465/.521 as a soph with 55 BBs vs 30 Ks in 240 ABs. 12th-ranked prospect this summer in the CCBL.

Other than Baty, is there anyone in the Houston/Austin/SA area that needs watching?

Oh no, college too. I watch a good bit of BigXII and central TX HS ball.  Thanks for the info as always.

Not a local JUCO name, but Carter Stewart is also someone interesting to watch.  Braves took him with the eighth overall pick last year.  However, he never signed and is pitching for Eastern Florida State College this season.

Not particularly draft-related but seems as good a place as any to drop this:

Of 297 Division I teams, 37 have TrackMan installed at their home ballpark. Of those 37 teams, 28 belong to Power 5 conferences. Not all of those teams are created equal. Some have gained reputations among the coaching community for using the technology in effective ways; others are still scratching the surface; and still others keep their strategies close to the vest. At UNC, [their] analytics department have found hundreds of ways to manipulate TrackMan and play-by-play data, arming the Tar Heel coaches and players with binders of charts, graphics, advanced stats and concepts that might not feel intuitive to a baseball purist. Daley-Harris and his team use coding language, like Python, to evaluate huge collections of data points at once and display them in accessible, appealing fashion.

“I think a lot of credit has to start with [Head] Coach [Mike] Fox, because there are coaches all over the country who want to do more of this stuff, but their head coaches are old school and they’re just not comfortable,” said Kyle Boddy, the founder of the data-driven Driveline Baseball program and one of the game’s most innovative thinkers. “I want to stress how rare that is that someone with so much history in the game—any game really—with that kind of pedigree is willing to make the changes he did. The credit starts at the top. It’s amazing the progress they’ve made there in a year and a half,” Boddy said. “When I went there and [they] showed me [their] spray charts and everything he had for guys, I was shocked. I was like, ‘Dude, this is better than 25 pro teams.’ I mean, you’re chasing down the Astros and a few other teams maybe. They’re leagues ahead of anybody else. I could tell you. I know all the teams that are doing analytics. It’s not even close. It’s a joke. There’s not even a 1B or a 1C. Realistically, there’s not even a No. 2.”

https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/north-carolina-leads-college-baseball-into-the-analytics-age/


Article was written over 9 months ago so additional schools undoubtedly have adopted TrackMan since then. But Tar Heel players working extensively with this data while in school may give Luhnow another reason to favor Tar Heel players.

Rolling out thumbnails on a conference by conference basis...

BIG 12 Names to Know for 1st 5 rounds of 2019 Draft

C Shea Langeliers, Baylor
Listed at 6’0” 190 lbs. Going into the spring the Keller HS grad is considered a Top 10 pick.

3B Davis Wendzel, Baylor
Listed at 6’0” 205 lbs. .310/.435/.532 for the Bears in 2018 (almost exactly the same numbers as his freshman year) followed by a somewhat disappointing .236/.346/.385 summer in the Cape.

LHP Cody Bradford, Baylor
Listed at 6’3” 195 lbs. The Aledo HS valedictorian had a terrific soph season for the Bears in 2018 as he led the conference in ERA while whiffing 87 and walking 26 in 97 IP. He also tied some team records originally set by future MLBers Jason Jennings and Shawn Tolleson. He then made two starts in the Cape over the summer, giving up 2 runs on 5 hits over 8 innings.

3B Josh Jung, TT
Listed at 6’2” 215 lbs. Like Langeliers, the San Antonio native is generally considered a Top 10 pick currently.

2B/OF Gabe Holt, TT
Listed at 5’10” 170 lbs. Draft-eligible soph who had a huge freshman season as Tech’s leadoff hitter, batting .348 and ranking 2nd in the conference in hits and SBs (11th and 18th nationally). 29 steals, caught just once. A 12% walk rate vs an 11% K rate. Hit .400 in the NCAA tourney followed by a .315 BA in the CCBL. Signability concerns and questions about his power might drop him down to later in the draft. Possible utility type at the next level after playing SS in high school and then 2B and RF for the Red Raiders.

RHP Caleb Kilian, TT
Listed at 6’4” 180 lbs. The former Flower Mound HSer is scheduled to be the Friday starter for the Red Raiders this spring. As a draft-eligible soph, was taken by the Orioles in the 20th round this past June.

RHP John McMillon, TT
Listed at 6’3” 230 lbs. Scheduled to follow Kilian in the rotation as the Saturday starter. Has been a two way player his first couple of seasons for the Red Raiders. The kid from Jasper was a 21st round pick of the Rays out of high school in 2016.

RHP Caleb Freeman, TT
Listed at 6’3” 205 lbs. The Abilene Cooper grad has been used almost exclusively out of the pen for the Red Raiders. Walks have been an issue with 33 free passes in 50 IP for Tech and another 10 BBs in 18 innings this past summer in the Cape.

1B Cameron Warren, TT
A senior so more likely taken in rounds 6-10. Older guy who turns 24 shortly after draft day. Large dude at a listed 6’3” 230 lbs. Drafted in 39th round in 2014 by the Yankees but not selected last year despite hitting .326/.444/.549 for the Red Raiders with 34 walks vs 30 strikeouts.

2B Brian Klein, TT
Listed at 5’11” 190 lbs. Tremendous improvement from his freshman campaign resulted in a .317/.422/.480 year for the Red Raiders in 2018 with a 15.9% walk rate versus 14.7% K rate. Continued to hit over the summer by putting up a .317/.396/.427 line in the California Collegiate League. Lefty hitter.

LHP Nick Lodolo, TCU
Listed at 6'6" 180 lbs. The Horned Frog likely gets picked quickly if he steps up his game this spring after some inconsistency his first two years. A 1st round supplemental pick of the Pirates in 2016 out of HS.

RHP Alek Manoah, WVU
Listed at a husky 6’6” 260 lbs. Can run the FB up to 98. Not being able to find the plate resulted in working mostly out of the bullpen his first two years for the Mountaineers but turned heads this past summer with outstanding results in the starting rotation in the Cape. 48 Ks vs 11 BBs in 33 IP for Chatham with just 15 hits allowed and consequently BA ranked him as the #4 prospect in the CCBL.

C Chase Illig, WVU
Listed at 6’0” 210 lbs. Not drafted after HS in 2015 nor as a RS soph last year for West Virginia. Bat has been very weak for the Mountaineers but summer play has been a different story including a .363/.474/.699 line this past year in the California Collegiate League (garnering a #7 prospect ranking in that league by BA). Good defender says BA. Switch-hitter.

RHP Ryan Zeferjahn, KU
Listed at 6’4” 216 lbs. The stuff is there, the control not so much. Upper 90s FB along with a good slider. 74 walks in 133 career innings for the Jayhawks and another 9 in 15 IP this past summer in the Cape (but also allowed just 5 hits while whiffing 20). 37th round pick of the Rays out of HS.

LHP Braidyn Fink, OU
Listed at 6’1” 215 lbs. Walks have been problematic for the Sooners reliever but showed improvement this past year with a combined 57 Ks vs 21 BBs in 44 innings between Norman and the Cape.


Note (1): If no draft history noted, then player has never been drafted.

Note (2): Righty hitter unless otherwise noted.

Note (3): Some of these players will be gone by the time the Astros make their first pick at #32 and are included here merely for the sake of completeness.

I assume Zach Zubia (Texas) is draft-eligible, and though he’s a slug, his bat is pretty impressive. Surprised none of those sources mentioned him going within the top five rounds.

ZZ Bop (anyone else using that nickname?) has not shown up on any of the draft boards I've seen so far. But he had an amazing summer in the Northwoods League back in 2017 (.311/.455/.672, 57 BBs vs 51 Ks) and if he can approach anything close to that with the Horns this spring then he starts to look really interesting despite the lackluster 1B profile.

CENTEX/HOUSTON AREA JUCO & HS Names to Know for 1st 5 rounds of 2019 Draft

RHP Matthew Thompson, Cy Ranch HS
Listed at 6’3” 184 lbs. Aggie commit. FB most recently reported at 91-93. Excellent SL and promising CU.

RHP JJ Goss, Cy Ranch HS
Listed at 6’2” 172 lbs. Aggie commit. FB they say has touched mid 90s and (like Thompson) has a promising SL and CU.

SS/OF/RHP Trey Faltine, Fort Bend Travis HS
Listed at 6’3” 185 lbs. Longhorn commit. Likely a future position player but his moundwork is also intriguing.

RHP/3B Andre Duplantier, Houston Summer Creek HS
Listed at 6’2” 195 lbs. Longhorn commit. Former Rice pitcher/1st round draft pick/Top 100 prospect Jon is his cousin.

RHP Josh Wolf, Bellaire St. Thomas HS
Listed at 6’2” 165 lbs. Aggie commit. Up to 93 on FB and good CB.

SS Armani Sanchez, Houston Heights HS
Listed at 6’2” 170 lbs. Sooners commit.

1B Brett Baty, Lake Travis HS
Listed at 6’3” 210 lbs. The lefty hitter is a Longhorn commit. Old for the HS draft class at 19.5 yrs.

RHP Jimmy Lewis, Lake Travis HS
Listed at 6’6” 200 lbs. LSU commit. Low 90s FB coupled with what they say is an average CB and CU.

OF Austin Plante, Lake Travis HS
Listed at 6’4” 214 lbs. TCU commit. Lefty hitter.

RHP Will Rigney, Waco Midway HS
Listed at 6’5” 190 lbs. Baylor commit. FB up to 95. SL especially is inconsistent but both it and the CU are promising.

RHP Jackson Rutledge, San Jac
Listed at 6’8” 255 lbs. Kentucky commit. The St. Louis native pitched at Arkansas his freshman year before moving on to the Gators. Reported as throwing consistently 96-97 and touching 98-99 in first outing of the season in late January. Plus SL and his CB and CU have some promise.

Mid-Major West Coast Names to Know for 1st 5 rounds of 2019 Draft

BIG WEST

SS Christian Koss, UCI
Listed at 6’2” 185 lbs. Big defense, sucky offense with little hint of pop. Named 23rd-best prospect in the CCBL by BA despite hitting just .263/.323/.333. That came after a soph season for the Anteaters where he put up a .287/.343/.379 line.

RHP Andre Pallante, UCI
Listed at 6’0” 203 lbs. Terrific 2018 with 115 Ks vs 30 BBs in 101 innings for the Anteaters followed by a short but strong performance in the CCBL (15 IP, 9 H, 5 BB, 15 K). He also pitched in the summer for Team USA where the scouting report said his FB sat 91-94 (reaching 95 once) with a better CB than SL. The evaluator also noted the FB was particularly effective up in the zone though Pallante didn’t throw it there often.

3B Brandon Lewis, UCI
Listed at 6’3” 215 lbs. JUCO transfer who led the California Collegiate League in both BA and HRs while posting a low 12.3% K rate. He ended up being named MVP of the league while Baseball America rated him 6th-best CCL prospect. Has a chance to stick at third.

SS Sahid Valenzuela, CSF
Listed at 5’9” 165 lbs. Some reports say he’ll have to move to 2B in the pros. 2018 was not particularly kind at the plate for Sahid. He dropped to .272/.313/.358 for the Titans (down from .314/.366/.378 as a freshman) prior to a CCBL season where he hit .286/.342/.410. Evidently that was good enough for D1baseball.com to name him 14th-best middle infielder in the Cape.

OF Tommy Jew, UCSB
Listed at 6’1” 185 lbs. Good reviews on his CF defense. Leadoff hitter with much more speed than pop at present. .313/.387/.456 for the Gauchos last year followed by a .245/.315/.357 summer in the CCBL. He did hit .328/.394/.578 in the NECBL the summer before so he does have at least some wood bat success (albeit at a lower level of competition).


WEST COAST CONFERENCE

LHP Chris Murphy, USD
Listed at 6’1” 175 lbs. Walks have been a problem in his first 2 years for the Toreros with 72 in 150 innings. But there were 180 Ks over that span. BBs continued in Cape Cod this summer with 18 in 23 IP but the 34 punchouts reflect the FB touching 95 when he pitches out of the pen (sits in low 90s as a starter). Both his CB and CU have shown potential at times. D1baseball.com ranked him the 4th-best southpaw in the Cape at the end of the summer.

LHP Ken Waldichuk, St. Mary's
Listed at 6’4 230 lbs. 118 whiffs vs 21 walks in 92 IP for the Gaels in 2018. Moved on to the CCBL for the summer and did a fairly credible job there (20 Ks/7 BBs/18 hits/18.1 IP).

RHP Riley Ornido, San Francisco
Listed at 6’4” 185 lbs. Seldom-used as a freshman, he burst out in 2018 with 95 Ks vs 32 BBs in 98 innings with only 63 hits allowed (including just 2 longballs). Followed that up with a short but quality stint in the CCBL with 15 whiffs to 3 walks in 12 IP while being dinged for just 8 hits.  Up to 93 on the FB. One of the younger players in the college draft class.

RHP Alek Jacob, Gonzaga
Listed at 6’1” 175 lbs. Yes, he’s a sidearmer. No, he doesn’t throw hard (or at least he didn’t coming out of HS 2 years ago). Probably not a recipe for great success at the next level but...he had a helluva impressive freshman debut for the Zags in 2018 with 95 Ks in 103 innings with a WHIP of 0.99. And apparently he’s a draft-eligible soph. So it’ll be an interesting spring to see how he follows up that freshman campaign.

RHP Casey Legumina, Gonzaga
Listed at 6’2” 195 lbs. Moved from a starter role into the bullpen in 2018 as the Zags’ closer and was immediately successful as he led the West Coast Conference in saves and notched 52 punchouts in 48 IP with just 7 walks. He also made a pair of starts in the CCBL over the summer, allowing no ER in 9 frames w/9 Ks and just 1 BB. FB touching 95 and a decent slider. Drafted in the 25th round in 2016 out of HS and in the 35th round last year as a draft eligible soph. Any further spike in velo this spring might push him up into Day 2 territory. Dad was a minor league pitcher in the Dodgers and Tigers orgs back in the 80’s.


MOUNTAIN WEST

SS Bryson Stott, UNLV
Listed at 6’3” 195 lbs. A likely 1st round pick say the experts who also believe he’ll probably stick at short in the pros. Hit .365/.442/.556 for the Rebels in 2018 with a walk rate of 10.9% and a K rate of just 6.1%. Played for Team USA in the summer after a brief stint in the CCBL (.275/.383/.325) where he didn’t impress anybody with his lack of pop.


WAC

OF Quin Cotton, Grand Canyon
Listed at 5’11” 200 lbs. His numbers out west in 2018 were predictably bubbly (.390/.462/.573) and fell back to earth when he headed east to spend the summer in the Cape (.286/.344/.367). D1baseball.com did however rate him the 11th-best corner outfielder in the CCBL. Folks say he doesn’t have the arm for right so putting even more pressure on him to produce offensively. Rockies drafted him in the 38th round in 2016 out of HS.


Note (1): If no draft history shown, then player has never been drafted.

Note (2): Righty hitter unless otherwise noted.

Note (3): A number of these players will be gone by the time the Astros make their first pick at #32 and are included here merely for the sake of completeness.

Mid-Major Southeast Names to Know for 1st 5 rounds of 2019 Draft

BIG SOUTH

RHP Seth Johnson, Campbell
Listed at 6’1” 200 lbs. A popup dude with little actual mound experience. He played at JUCO for his first two years where he mostly played the infield for Louisburg College. Did not get on the mound his freshman year and made just 5 appearances as a soph. Transferring to Campbell, in the fall he was throwing 92-95 with a pair of average breaking balls and was learning a change.

OF Matthew Barefoot, Campbell
Listed at 6’0” 205 lbs. Tore up the Big South in 2018 with a .364/.484/.585 line and was 6th in the nation in HBPs and was also 10th nationally in steals with 33 (caught just 5 times). To show his soph season for the Camels was no fluke (or beating up on subpar pitching), he then went on to wow folks in the Cape with a .379/.484/.521 line and was ranked by BA as the 47th-best prospect there. One evaluator suggested he might be limited to left due to the arm but I wonder given his speed if he has any chance of playing a halfway-decent CF. Given the Buies Creek Astros shared the Camels’ facilities and stadium the past two years, I’m guessing the Astros might have a lot more data and info on Barefoot than most other clubs. Not that it made any difference in 2018--as a RS soph he was eligible to be drafted.

RHP Zach Peek, Winthrop
Listed at 6’3” 185 lbs. His repertoire includes a FB sitting 91-95 and has touched 96. Reports say his CB had one of the highest spin rates for a soph in 2018. His CU is at least considered average. 99 Ks/24 BBs for the Eagles in 2018 in 89 innings. A bit rougher time in the CCBL with a 1.58 WHIP though he did have 27 punchouts in 26 IP.


SUN BELT

RHP Hunter Gaddis, Georgia State
Listed at 6’6” 212 lbs. FB up to 95 and both his breaking balls seem to be effective. Reports are his CU was really coming on in the fall giving him a more than decent 4 pitch arsenal. 29th-ranked prospect in the Cape by Baseball America. 98 Ks/24 BBs in 101 innings for the Panthers in 2018 followed by a summer with Chatham where he allowed just 11 hits and 4 walks in 18 IP while punching out 13.

LHP Anthony Veneziano, Coastal Carolina
Listed at 6’5” 205 lbs. The NJ kid looks to be the Chanticleers Saturday starter this spring. The stuff is there (a FB that can touch 95, a legit slider) but the control isn’t: 36 walks in 59 innings for the Chants in 2018 and another 8 in 14.2 IP for Cotuit in the CCBL.

1B Zach Biermann, Coastal Carolina
Listed at 6’3” 225 lbs. Two years at JUCO followed by his junior season with CC in 2018 in which he hit .302/.419/.561 followed by a .291/.359/.496 summer with Cotuit. Lefty hitter and as a senior probably is more likely to go in rounds 6-10. Missed fall workouts after breaking his hand on a HBP in the Cape.

2B Cory Wood, Coastal Carolina
Listed at 5’9” 180 lbs. The Chants’ leadoff hitter produced a .296/.435/.390 season in 2018 with a whopping 52 walks vs just 23 whiffs in 223 ABs. His summer with Cotuit wasn’t as good but he still had more walks than whiffs (27 vs 23). Could shoot up draft boards if he adds some pop this spring. Lefty hitter.

OF Todd Lott, ULL
Listed at 6’4” 235 lbs. 20th round pick of the Reds as a HSer in 2016 (would have gone higher but for a shoulder injury). Hasn’t really shown the promise he had coming out of high school with the Ragin’ Cajuns. A .266/.345/.344 freshman year was followed by a .246/.319/.462 soph year in 2018 in which he only played in 27 games. His wood bat summers have shown much more promise including most recently a .293/.333/.469 performance with Hyannis in the CCBL. Probably is limited to LF so the bat concerns ratchet up even more. Ex-NFL great Ronnie Lott is a cousin.

LHP Chandler Fidel, Arkansas-Little Rock
Listed at 6’5” 225 lbs. FB velocity nothing to write home about (tops out at 89) but does have a high spin rate slider. 92 Ks/21 BBs in 96 IP for the Trojans in 2018 before moving on to Yarmouth-Dennis in the Cape and punching out 27 in 18 innings there.


ATLANTIC SUN

LHP Mitchell Senger, Stetson
Listed at 6’7” 240 lbs. But no power arm here--he relies more on deception with a FB is in the upper 80s to low 90s. Dominated for the Hatters in 2018 (114 Ks in 93 IP against 28 walks and allowing just 66 hits) before spending the summer with Team USA and the Orleans Firebirds in the Cape. His CCBL experience wasn’t smooth but still rated a 36th-best prospect ranking by BA. Stetson alums include Corey Kluber and Jacob deGrom and the Hatters had 4 pitchers drafted last year including 1st rounder Logan Gilbert.

OF Tanner Murphy, North Florida
Listed at 6’4” 195 lbs. Pretty much led UNF in every offensive category in 2018 while batting .326/.418/.534. That slugging percentage led the ASUN. With the power comes 70-grade speed that he uses to patrol CF for the Ospreys.


Note (1): If no draft history shown, then player has never been drafted.

Note (2): Righty hitter unless otherwise noted.

Note (3): A number of these players will be gone by the time the Astros make their first pick at #32 and are included here merely for the sake of completeness.
