Quote:
David's curveball can be a plus-plus hammer at its best, sitting at 83-85 mph and reaching 87 with tremendous depth, and he has doubled its usage to nearly 40 percent this spring. When he doesn't stay on top of his breaker, it plays like a mid-80s slider that's just as unhittable. He also can run his fastball up to 99 mph and uses his 6-foot-5 frame to create downhill plane to compensate for a lack of life, though he often dials it back to 92-95 in order to try to throw strikes.

David barely uses a changeup and has averaged nearly a walk per inning in college, so he almost certainly will be a reliever in the long run. He pitches without a windup but still struggles to repeat his delivery, which features some effort. He's strong and athletic and scouts praise his competitiveness and intelligence, which helped him graduate in May with a business administration degree and a 4.0 grade-point average.

A curveball that has a 72% swing and miss rate and can reach 100mph on his fastball. Ok, i'll take that in round 9.

looks like they saved money in rounds 2-7

which hopefully locks up rocker and allows them to go a little over slot for Vasil and David

Interesting pick for the 9th round. Tops in the upper 90s with a swing-and-miss breaker? Sign me up. Draft 10 of these guys and you only need one to learn to throw strikes and you've got an ace reliever. Scouting report reminds me of Montes de Oca with regards to big fastball but walks too many.

Looks enormous and totally unrefined. Needs a lot of work but has a live arm.
