"Another raw righthander drawing interest is Damien Magnifico, who has touched 94-95 mph. Though he's just 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds, he generates his velocity mostly with a quick arm rather than effort. Magnifico's fastball is fairly straight, and his curveball and command are quite raw, so he's still a work in progress. Though he hasn't committed to a four-year school and is ticketed for Howard JC, he'll be unsignable if reports that he wants a seven-figure bonus are true."

To me, that sounds signable, if we pony up the cash. Sounds more like a tej draft all the time...

Another arm that made an impact today was Damien Magnifico, a right-handed pitcher out of North Mesquite High School. The Amarillo native was clocked 88-90mph with a nice breaking ball. He may not have been as known as some of the other pitchers in Weatherford, but he certainly made a name for himself.

SCOUTING PROFILE: Along with having one of the coolest names in the 2009 draft, Magnifico has one of the best fastballs in the state of Texas, with his heater topping out in the 94-95 mph area this spring. Magnifico has a very loose, quick arm out front, and creates his velocity with a minimum of effort. He also commands his fastball unusually well. Magnficio is primarily a one-weapon pitcher at the moment as a hand wrap in back affects his ability to repeat his release point with his curveball, and he tends to slow down his arm speed to get the pitch over the plate. Magnifico has gone 3-4, 1.70 with 63 strikeouts in 45 innings this spring.-DAVID RAWNSLEY

One of the best fastballs in the state of Texas, with unusually good command, sounds good to me.
