2011 MLB Draft Scouting Report: Alex Meyer – RHP – Kentucky

2011 MLB Draft Prospect: Alex Meyer – RHP – Kentucky. 6’9″ 220. Class: Junior. DOB: 1.3.90. Last Drafted: 2008 – Red Sox (20th Round).

Scouted: Niagara Purple Eagles @ Kentucky Wildcats 3.12.11 (In Person)

Regarded as the 25th best draft prospect in the 2008 draft by Baseball America as a prep star in Indiana, Meyer’s strong commitment to Kentucky and the fact that he was advised by the Boras Corp caused him to slide to Boston in the 20th round. Meyer would later pass on an alleged $2 Million signing bonus to go to school.

During his time in Lexington, Meyer has been less than spectacular. Though he’s posted K/9 ratios of 12.1 and 11.1 in his first two years in college, he also posted BB/9 ratios of 6.8 and 6.4 during that same span.

I had hoped that Meyer could be the Matt Harvey of this year’s class, another highly regarded prep star who struggled through his first two years of school. Harvey turned into an ace and top 10 pick in 2010 (Mets 7th overall) and while Meyer has not been as bad as he was in ’09 and ’10, he’s been madly inconsistent.

Though I may have witnessed the best outing of his career, a complete game shutout where he yielded just 5 hits, 2 walks while posting a career high 13 strikeouts, I didn’t come away overly impressed as Meyer lacks the polish of his draft class peers.

It’s important to note that getting one live look at a player doesn’t provide nearly enough information to produce a true scouting report, but that’s not going to stop me from giving you my report anyway.

REPERTOIRE:

Fastball: Meyer made a name for himself with his fastball and it’s still a power pitch. He sits in the low 90s and he can run it as high as 96. Meyer lacks command of this, and any pitch.

Curveball: The curveball possesses the potential to develop into a plus pitch and Meyer has the confidence to throw it in any count, confidence that he has not earned. He started several hitters off with a weaker get me over offering up in the zone then later he’d finish off the same hitter with a tighter swing and miss version of the pitch in the dirt.

Changeup: Meyer didn’t throw, nor did he need many changeups ageist Niagara and the times he did throw it he held the pitch too long missing his release point and causing the pitch to skip.

DELIVERY

Though he possess rare athleticism for a big man, Meyer doesn’t follow through on any pitch. When you’re 6 foot 9 and you don’t bend your back your ball is going to sail up and out of the strike zone and Meyer’s balls have so much sailing experience he could actually tell you the difference between starboard and port. Wow, that was bad. Though his high finish turns me off of his delivery, he does a decent job of repeating said delivery which is encouraging. Because of this, a good professional pitching coach may be able to turn him into a strike thrower. When throwing from the stretch, he’s a little too deliberate to home plate consistently posting times in the 1.4-1.6 second range making him someone that teams will run on unless he can cut that down.

FUTURE

When Meyer opted not to sign in 2008 he looked like a possible #1 overall pick in the 2011 draft. That’s clearly out of the question now as his warts have been exposed during his collegiate career, but on God given talent alone he still could find himself off the board in the first round.

Matty Ott – RHP – LSU – Jr. 1IP 0H 0ER 0BB 2K. Encouraging sign that the ’09 Matty Ott is back.

Ryne Stanek – RHP – Arkansas – Fr. 4IP 0H 0ER 2BB 6K. Great debut. Will develop a nice inter-conference rivalry with fellow freshman Gausman.

Bradley Hendrix – RHP – Auburn – Sr. 1.2IP 5H 2ER 1BB 1K. Unsigned 30th round pick (Reds ’10)

Taylor Rogers – LHP – Kentucky – So. 6IP 7H 2ER 0BB 7K.

Kevin Ziomek – LHP – Vanderbilt – Fr. 5.1IP 4H 1ER 1BB 5K. ND but great start for a Freshman who I anticipated would be a midweek starter.

Big 12

Cole Green – RHP – Texas – Sr. 4IP 6H 6ER 1BB 5K. (L, 0-1) Uncharacteristically bad outing from someone who was so good last season.

Michael Wacha – RHP – Texas A&M – So. 6IP 5H 0ER 0BB 7K. A top prospect in the 2012 draft class.

Bobby Shore – RHP – Oklahoma – Sr. 5.1IP 5H 5ER 4BB 2K.

Trae Davis – RHP – Baylor – Fr. .2IP 0H 0ER 1BB 0K. (W, 1-0). Bluechip freshman picks up W in first appearance.

Tom Lemke – RHP – Nebraska – So. 5.2IP 6H 2ER 1BB 3K.

ACC

Jed Bradley – LHP – Georgia Tech – Jr. 5.2IP 4H 1ER 2BB 10K. If Mark Pope continues to be successful on Fridays, head coach Danny Hall will look like a genius for letting ace Bradley throw on Saturdays.

DeAndre Smelter – RHP – Georgia Tech – Fr. 1.1IP 0H 0ER 0BB 2K. (W, 1-0) Freshman two way player Smelter is on my preseason Freshman All American team.

Patrick Johnson – RHP – UNC – Sr. 5.2IP 7H 1ER 3BB 6K. Strong start in ND that UNC would would against Fullerton.

Big East

Matt Barnes – RHP – Connecticut – Jr. 6IP 3H 2ER 3BB 11K (L, 0-1). Barnes will be a first round pick in 2011 but he took a tough luck loss against a good Minnesota team in the Big 10/Big East challenge.

Tony Zych – RHP – Louisville – Jr. 1IP 2H 0ER 0BB 2K (S, 2). Back to back saves for Zych who I would project as a 1s thru 3rd round arm at the moment.

Mountain West Conference

Kyle Winkler – RHP – TCU – Jr. 7IP 1H 0ER 0BB 8K (W, 1-0). Winkler will be a value pick for some team in June. I’d guess maybe in the 5-10 round range but that can change of course.

Taylor Cole – RHP – BYU – So. 5IP 4H 0ER 1BB 3K (W, 1-0)

Conference USA

Matthew Reckling – RHP – Rice – Jr. – 6IP 4H 0ER 2BB 4K. (W, 1-0)

Nick Ramirez – LHP – Cal State Fullerton – Jr. 2IP 1H 0ER 3BB 2K. (S, 1). Unrelated Nick is the closer on top of being the #3 hitter fir the Titans.

Andrew Gagnon – RHP – Long Beach State – Jr. 7IP 4H 2ER 3BB 6K. He and Noe Ramirez are the two best pitching prospects in the Big South. Would have loved to see this face off in a 2-1 Fullerton win.

Tyler Pill – RHP – Cal State Fullerton – Jr. 6IP 7H 3ER 2BB 5K. Against North Carolina.

Dylan Floro – RHP – Cal State Fullerton – So. 4.1IP 3H 0ER 1BB 3K. (L, 0-1)

Jacob Booden – RHP – Bradley – Jr. 5IP 2H 0ER 4BB 5K.

Atlantic Sun Conference

Jacob Barnes – RHP – Florida Gulf Coast – Jr. 2IP 1H 0ER 0BB 5K. (S, 1) Dominate performance for 2011 draft prospect.

Ben Carhart – RHP – Stetson – Jr. 1IP 1H 0ER 0BB 1K.

Colonial Athletic Conference

Justin Bradley – RHP – UNC Wilmington – Jr. 5IP 5H 2ER 3BB 3K. (W, 1-0)

Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference

Ali Simpson – LHP – Bethune-Cookman – Jr. 6IP 1H 0ER 1BB 14K. (W, 1-0) I have no idea if Simpson is a prospect, but performances like this cannot be ignored. He’s on my radar.

Southland Conference

Carson Smith – RHP – Texas State – Jr. 2IP 3H 1ER 0BB 4K. Top draft prospect in the Southland conference.

College Baseball Prospect Update – Pitchers 2.18.11

Opening Weekend for college baseball has some great matchups, highlighted by Stanford in Houston facing off against the Owls. Friday nights in College Baseball are particularly fascinating as most teams chose that platform to throw their ace and set the stage for the weekend series. Below you’ll see a list of likely MLB draft picks. Some will be first round selections, and some already have. Let’s see how they did in their respective season openers.



Pac 10

Gerrit Cole – RHP – UCLA – Jr. 9IP 4H 0ER 1BB 11K (W, 1-0). Cole needed just 104 pitches to go the distance in a 1-0 win against San Francisco.

Mark Appel – RHP – Stanford – So. 5.2IP 8H 2ER 1BB 4K.

Tyler Anderson – LHP – Oregon – Jr. 6IP 4H 1ER 4BB 3K

Adam Conley – LHP – Washington St. Jr. 8IP 4H 2ER 0BB 9K. (W, 1-0)

SEC

Sonny Gray – RHP – Vanderbilt – Jr. 4.1IP 4H 3ER 2BB 6K. Not as sharp as he’s capable of being.

Brian Johnson – LHP – Florida – So. 6IP 2H 0ER 0BB 6K (W, 1-0). Also went 2-4 at the plate with a couple of doubles. Will DH the rest of the weekend.

DJ Baxendale – RHP – Arkansas – So. 5IP 4H 0ER 1BB 7 K (W, 1-0)

Michael Roth – LHP – South Carolina – Jr. 5.2IP 4H 2ER 1BB 6K (W, 1-0).

Alex Panteliodis – LHP – Florida – Jr. 1IP 3H 2ER 0BB 1K. Last year’s Friday starter went 11-3 on an Omaha bound team is now the best midweek starter in the nation. He mopped up this game and will start Tuesday.

Ben Alsup – RHP – LSU – Sr. 5IP 5H 0ER 2BB 4K (W, 1-0)

Big 12

Taylor Jungmann – RHP – Texas – Jr. 9IP 5H 0ER 1BB 9K (W, 1-0). He, Gray, Cole, and Purke will challenge each other in the box scores every weekend.

John Stilson – RHP – Texas A&M – Jr. 6IP 3H 0ER 1BB 9K (W, 1-0). Looks like the rotation will suit him just fine.

Logan Verrett – RHP – Baylor – Jr. 3IP 6H 4ER 1BB 3K (L, 0-1). The first round prospect off to a rough start with poor showing against Oral Roberts.

Matt Stites – RHP – Missouri – Jr. 5IP 6H 4ER 1BB 3K. JUCO transfer.

Michael Rocha – RHP – Oklahoma – Sr. 7IP 1H 0ER 1BB 7K (W, 1-0) Senior will need to be strong for Oklahoma to go back to Omaha. He’s off to a good start.

T.J. Walz – RHP – Kansas – Sr. 4IP 7H 7ER 4BB 3K (L, 0-1)

ACC

Danny Hultzen – LHP – Virginia – Jr. 6.2IP 3H 1ER 1BB 10K (W, 1-0). Probably the most consistent pitcher in the college baseball over the past 3 seasons.

Brandon Kline – RHP – Virginia – So. .2IP 0H 0ER 0BB 2K (S, 1)

Sean Gilmartin – LHP – Florida State – Jr. 7IP 6H 0ER 0BB 6K (W, 1-0)

Mark Pope – RHP – Georgia Tech – Jr. 6.2IP 5H 1ER 1BB 6K (W, 1-0). Strong performance against a good Kent State squad.

Kevin Jacob – RHP – Geogia Tech – Jr. 1IP 1H 1ER 1BB 1K.

Cory Mazzoni – RHP – NC State – Jr. 6IP 8H 4ER 2BB 3K (W, 1-0)

Big East

Tony Zych – RHP – Louisville – Jr. 1IP 0H 0ER 0BB 2K (S, 1). One of the better fastballs in 2011 Draft.

Kyle Hansen – RHP – St. John’s – So. 4IP 4H 1ER 1BB 2K. (S, 1) 2nd Team Freshman All American last season.

Randy Fontanez – RHP – South Florida – Sr. 4.2IP 9H 6ER 1BB 3K. (L, 0-1) Unsigned 15th round pick last season (Reds) has good movement on 2 seem fastball. Brian Johnson and Preston Tucker were too much to handle.

Brian Dupra – RHP – Notre Dame – Jr. 7IP 7H 2ER 0BB 5K.

Elliot Glynn – LHP – Connecticut – Sr. 4.2IP 7H 3ER 3BB 3K. (L, 0-1)

Mountain West Conference

Matt Purke – LHP – TCU – So. 4IP 1H 0ER 1BB 3K. Short outing. He’s not going to get to 16 wins again if they take him out this early.

Conference USA

John Simms – RHP – Rice – Fr. 5IP 5H 1ER 1BB 4K. Not a bad start to a college career against a good Stanford team.

Chase McDowell – RHP – Rice – So. 2.2IP 7H 4ER 0BB 1K (L, 0-1).

Todd McInnis – RHP – Southern Mississippi – Sr. 8IP 5H 0ER 0BB 7K (W, 1-0)

Conrad Flynn – RHP – Tulane – Sr. 7IP 5H 0ER 0BB 5K. (L, 0-1)

Ryan Woolley – RHP – UAB – Sr. 5IP 8H 4ER 2BB 4K . (L, 0-1) Redshirt Senior was once a 6th round pick (’09 – ATL).

Big South Conference

Anthony Meo – RHP – Coastal Carolina – Jr. 6IP 3H 2ER 4BB 9K. First round prospect showed dominance but also control issues in no decision against Boston College.

Adam Lopez – RHP – VMI – Jr. 3IP 3H 2ER 4BB 3K. (L, 0-1).

Cody Allen – RHP – High Point – Jr. 4IP 10H 8ER 3BB 1K. (L, 0-1). Not good.

Matt Andriese – RHP – UC Riverside – So. 7IP 8H 0ER 0BB 3K.

Scouting Report: Aroldis Chapman – LHP – CIN

Aroldis Chapman – LHP – Cincinnati Reds. 6’4″ 185. DOB: 2.28.88. Signed: Cuba 6 Year $30.25MM.

Scouted: Louisville Bats @ Columbus Clippers 6.1.10 (In Person)

I got my first look at Aroldis Chapman on TV during the 2009 World Baseball Classic. While pitching for the Cuban National Team, Chapman elevated his international prospect status with a 4IP 3H 1ER 1BB 7K performance against Australia. The following outing against Japan however, Chapman struggled with his control. He often had trouble with his release point and when things were not going well, he stomped and pouted on the mound. He took the loss against the eventual champions and left with a line of 2.1IP 3H 3ER 3BB 1K. After defecting in 2010, Chapman shocked baseball pundits by signing with the low budget Reds.

It’s important to note that getting one live look doesn’t provide nearly enough information to produce a true scouting report, but that’s not going to stop me from giving you my report anyway. On the day Chapman produced a line of 7IP 4H 2ER 3BB 5K in a no decision.

REPERTOIRE:

Fastball: On sheer velocity, Chapman breaks the 80-20 scale. That’s what happens when you can hit 105 MPH on the radar gun. While he doesn’t get much actual movement at that velocity, his 3/4 delivery causes the ball to cross the plane at a boring angle to right handed hitters.

Slider: Chapman can hit 90 MPH with this pitch on a good day, and it has sharp but sizable break.

Changeup: His changeup is a below average offering and it’s simply not needed out of the pen. His eventual success as a starter will depend heavily on the development of this pitch.

DELIVERY

Chapman has improved his delivery as a professional as the lengthy lefty used to have trouble repeating his delivery. On occasion Chapman will depart from his 3/4 delivery and come over the top to throw his sliders. More experienced hitters will exploit this if Chapman doesn’t maintain a consistent release point.

FUTURE

The question on Chapman’s future is whether he’ll start or relieve. Chapman, like any premium pitching prospect, is more valuable as a front line starter than as a reliever. However, Chapman is so filthy out of the pen on a contending team that his immediate future is to resume his 8th inning role in Cincinnati and possibly take over for Francisco Cordero if he falters.

College Baseball Prospects: Top Sophomores 2011

The sophomore year is perhaps the most important evaluation period for a college prospect. While some super studs like Matt Purke and Anthony Rendon before him truly shine as freshman, the sophomore year usually separates the men from the boys. While I did rank the players below, I wouldn’t pay particularly close attention to where each player falls on the list. The ranking below was an attempted balance between high profile recruits and lower profile performers. They all deserve my attention as I prepare coverage of future MLB drafts and projecting the performance of college baseball’s best teams. If there are guys that I’ve missed, and undoubtedly there are, don’t hesitate to let me know so I can follow their performance throughout 2011.
