Farm team assigned to: Mahoning Valley

Role at Long Beach this year: 7th/8th inning guy

Stuff: fastball up to 94 mph and sits at 91-93. Also throws curvball and changeup

Bonus: 4th round slot money: $200,000

Pre-draft buzz: Would go in rounds 3-6. The Indians talked to him earlier than most teams through their area scout and he filled out a questionnaire and a psychological test but he never talked to a cross-checker or the scouting director or to the area scout later in the year.

His words: He is ready to work hard and will do the best he can.
