SCOUTING REPORT:

MLB.com

Rank: 161

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 55 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 45 | Overall: 45

Had he not been intent on playing for his father Dave, the head coach at Tennessee, Serrano might have been a first-round pick out of high school in 2013. Neither he nor the Volunteers have enjoyed as much success as hoped, however, and his 2016 season ended after one start with an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery in March.

Serrano looked like a potential early-round pick again last summer in the Cape Cod League. He sat in the low 90s and reached 96 mph with sink and tail on his fastball. He can manipulate his power breaking ball into a curve with downward break or a slider with more velocity, and both grade as plus pitches when he can land them in the strike zone -- which he doesn't do consistently.

Besides improving his control and command, Serrano also needs to refine and trust his changeup. Despite his ups and downs and his elbow reconstruction, there's a sense that he could be fare better in pro ball than he did in college pitching for his dad. A good impression in the Cape can outweigh a disappointing spring, and he still could go in the first five rounds.
