ROUND 21 (643rd overall): Eddy Tavarez, RHP

Image
(Photo: Peru State College)

Height: 6'6
Weight: 245
B/T: R/R
School: Peru State College (NE)
Year: Senior
DOB: 5/16/95

SCOUTING REPORT:

Perfect Game:
Tararez is a sturdy 6-foot-5 senior pitcher from the Dominican Republic who has been freaky phenomenal this season. After throwing eight innings in a win over Grand View on Saturday, in which he only allowed a single hit with 16 strikeouts, he lowered his eye-popping numbers to rank fourth in the NAIA in opposing batting average at a teensy .136 mark. In five starts this season he has thrown a total of 26 2/3 innings while stubbornly only allowing a dozen hits. Meanwhile he has amazingly struck out 51 batters, thusly making it four times more likely that a batter would strike out against him rather than get a hit.

He has already earned the Heart of America Pitcher of the Week title once this season, earning the honor after throwing a complete game two hitter with 14 strikeouts over Graceland earlier in the month. He most certainly receive the award again this week after setting his new career high in Ks.

Tavarez was just as dominating last season earning an 8-3 record for the Bobcats as he was first in the Heart Conference in opponent batting average (.166) and second in ERA at 2.17. Prior to Peru State, Tavarez pitched at Morton College in Cicero, Illinois. In 2017 he appeared in 16 games and impressively struck out 27 batters in 20 1/3 innings but had a robust 9.30 ERA for the Panthers.

Through the Fence Baseball:
After last season Eddy, reached out to me and asked, what I believed his chances were of being drafted. At the time I didn’t think he would go (2018), but his persistence and hard work will pay off in 2019. This season, he threw up some high velocity numbers that ran well into the mid 90’s. In 67.1 innings pitched, Cabrera sat down 118 opposing hitters, allowing just 33 hitters to reach base.

ROUND 23 (703rd overall): Carter Rustad, RHP

Image
(Photo: Perfect Game)

Height: 6'5
Weight: 195
B/T: R/R
School: Staley HS (MO)
Year: Senior
DOB: 4/23/01

SCOUTING REPORT:

MLB Pipeline:
Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 45

Rustad opened the eyes of scouts who caught him in a late-night game at the Area Code Games last August, when he sat in the low 90s for four scoreless innings. He continued to raise his profile by hitting 97 mph at a tournament in Arizona during his first outing of his senior season in March. Though he hasn't lit up radar guns as consistently this spring, few high school pitchers in this Draft can match his combination of peak velocity and projectability.

Rustad's fastball fluctuated with the weather in the Midwest, parking at 90-93 mph on some days and at 88-91 on others. He could operate in the mid-90s on a regular basis once he fills out his lean 6-foot-5 frame. He uses his size to create difficult angle and his heater also features high spin rates, as does a low-80s slider that gives him a sharp second pitch when he stays on top of it.

His changeup still is in the early stages of development, but Rustad shows some feel for it. The San Diego recruit has an athletic delivery, his arm works well and he can spot his fastball on both sides of the plate when he's on. He'll need some time to develop but has all of the ingredients to become at least a mid-rotation starter.

Perfect Game:
A projection righthander who jumped onto the scene at the Area Code Games last summer, Rustad has the type of long, lean build with present arm speed that scouts like. The arm has some whip to it and Rustad has flirted with the mid-90s this season in terms of fastball velocity. He has some rawness to the rest of the profile, as do most prep pitchers, but the physical projection and arm speed give him a prodigious ceiling. The secondary stuff ranges between below average and fringy, but scouts are optimistic about the totality of the package, and he could end up an absolute monster after three years at USD.

Baseball America:
A high school righthander with easy actions and projection is what you get with Rustad. He has a thin, 6-foot-4, 190-pound frame with a quick arm and easy three-quarter delivery with minimal effort. The San Diego commit has been up to 96 mph with his fastball and even touched 97 mph at an early start in Arizona. There’s a high spin rate on his fastball, though his velocity tends to fall off toward the middle and end of his outings, dipping into the 88-91 mph range. Rustad has shown feel for spinning a breaking ball at times, and this spring he separated the pitch into two distinct offerings: a slider and a curveball. However, scouts have graded both pitches as below-average this spring, with a solid changeup currently his best secondary. Rustad has plenty of starter traits and elements to like as a projection arm, with athleticism and good feel to locate his fastball, but he’ll need to add strength, hold his velocity deeper into games and make strides with his breaking pitches to fully realize his upside.

ROUND 24 (733rd overall): Jose Torres, SS

Image
(Photo: Pat O'Malley)

Height: 6'0
Weight: 160
B/T: R/R
School: Calvert Hall College HS (MD)
Year: Senior
DOB: 9/28/99

SCOUTING REPORT:

Perfect Game:
Torres has been an interesting follow in the Mid-Atlantic region for some time as an athletic, projectable middle infielder with good defensive tools and a knack for the barrel. He’s an above average runner with the athleticism and overall tools to stick in the middle infield long-term, which some scouts believe may be best at second base. He’s hit and hit well in high-level events, including the WWBA World Championship last fall, but the limited power to the profile does hold back the profile a bit. A North Carolina State signee, Torres should absolutely be able to help early on in his college career should he take that route out of high school.

Baseball America:
A 6-foot, 165-pound shortstop committed to North Carolina State, Torres has impressive, flashy defensive actions and a chance to stick at shortstop at the next level. He has clean, fluid hands and good body control, which translates to some bat-to-ball skills at the plate, but he needs to add strength in the future to improve bottom-of-the-scale power. One of the oldest players in the high school class, Torres will be sophomore-eligible in college and that fact will hurt him on analytical teams’ models.

Prep Baseball Report:
SS Jose Torres shows plenty of signs of filling out physically while on campus, and when he does, he is going to have a chance to be an impact player. Currently wiry-strong with natural athleticism, Torres moves well at shortstop where he should have a strong chance of sticking in Raleigh. Featuring some twitch in the hands, Torres whips the barrel through the zone at the plate to produce some gap to gap power that may end up translating well at the top of the Wolfpack order.

ROUND 26 (793rd overall): Zach Humphreys, C

Image
(Photo: TCU)

Height: 5'10
Weight: 190
B/T: R/R
School: TCU
Year: Junior
DOB: 10/9/97

SCOUTING REPORT:

Prep Baseball Report:
Humphreys has a stocky, physical, muscular frame at 5-foot-10, 190-pounds. The right-handed hitter has quick hands through the zone and squared up three singles in three at-bats. The first he drove through the ride side for an RBI. He singled up the middle, and then laced a ball through the six-hole in his third at-bat. Solid arm strength and athleticism behind the dish with carry to second base.

ROUND 28 (853rd overall): Andre Nnebe, CF

Image
(Photo: Santa Clara University)

Height: 6'6
Weight: 230
B/T: R/R
School: Santa Clara University
Year: Sophomore
DOB: 11/14/97

SCOUTING REPORT:

Baseball America (From 2017):
Nnebe’s raw tools are off-the-charts and immediately apparent at one glance at his 6-foot-6, 230-pound frame. Coming out of high school, scouts compared the northern California native to Aaron Judge for his power antics, and coaches now note he might be even taller than his listed height. Despite his giant levers, Nnebe had a very successful freshman season at Santa Clara, batting .293 as their everyday center fielder. And while his plate discipline and swing mechanics have a ways to go—understandably given his body—his raw power is unrivaled in the league. To boot, he’s been clocked at as low as 6.5 seconds in a 60-yard dash. That speed plays well in the outfield, giving Nnebe a chance to stick in centerfield for now then slide over to left field as he adds mass and slows down. No matter where he plays, the tools are all there for Nnebe to become a first-round talent down the road.

ROUND 29 (883rd overall): Jackie Urbaez, 2B

Image
(Photo: Twitter)

Height: 5'8
Weight: 185
B/T: S/R
School: St. Thomas University (FL)
Year: Senior
DOB: 8/29/97

SCOUTING REPORT:

Through the Fence Baseball:
Urbaez numbers are down this year compared to some monster stats he threw up last season. I don’t think that stops him from getting his name called next week! Urbaez is an all-around talented player. He can hit to all fields and is great defensively with a plus arm from second base. He’s a .339 career hitter at the NAIA level, with over 100 RBI and 17 HR in his two-year run at STU. He does the little things right, I believe his overall performance gets him picked up.

ROUND 31 (943rd overall): Jonathan Jones, RHP

Image
(Photo: The Alvin Sun)

Height: 6'1
Weight: 195
B/T: R/R
School: San Jacinto College North (TX)
Year: Freshman
DOB: 3/2/00

SCOUTING REPORT:

Prep Baseball Report:
With an athletic delivery, Jones attacked Texas with a lively fastball up to 93 MPH, and generated some very uncomfortable swings with two different breaking balls – a slider with late, sweeping break around 84 MPH and a deceptive curveball that sat between 76-80 MPH. At times, the breaking balls blended together, but the result was often the same – an uncomfortable take or hack in the batter’s box. Jones’s arm action might cause some scouts to pause, but the arm worked quickly and well out in front. Combine that with the athleticism to repeat, and Jones will be one to watch.

ROUND 32 (973rd overall): Jeff Figueroa, RHP


(Photo: )

Height: 6'0
Weight: 180
B/T: R/R
School: Florida Virtual School
Year: Senior
DOB: 8/22/00

SCOUTING REPORT:

Perfect Game (7/1/18 Game Report):
Jeff Figueroa (2019, Odessa, Fla.) was possibly the surprise of the morning. A strong two-way player, Figeuroa showed a quick, short and direct path to the ball and he had no problem hitting a double off the wall on a 90 mph fastball. In his next at-bat he kept his hands back on a good off-speed pitch and went the other way for a line drive single over the second baseman’s head. He has a big leg kick and shows great balance on his swing despite the kick. He has a strong arm and good hands at shortstop and definitely projects to stay there at the next level. Also a pitcher, he sat at 87-88 mph throughout his outing while displaying a very quick arm. His slider is a work in progress at 74 mph but shows some promise.

Prep Baseball Report:
Currently an uncommitted 2019 who is presently homeschooled, Figueroa was extremely impressive in his short outing. He has present athleticism and a compact, repeatable and clean delivery. The arm action is compact, clean and quick as well. The fastball came out out the hand with very little effort and was an easy 88-91 mph. He also showed a short, hard curveball that had depth at 81-83 mph and a chance to be a true out pitch. There is a chance he reclassifies as a 2020, but as of right now he is one of the top 2019 arms available.

Year: Senior

SCOUTING REPORT:

Baseball America:
Shapiro is a 5-foot-10, 185-pound senior lefthander that has been a sturdy presence in the rotation for Marshall. The lefthander has struggled with his control, but has pitched to a 3.58 ERA through 78 innings spanning across 14 starts. Shapiro works in the upper 80s with his fastball and shows a feel for pitching.

Height: 5'10
Weight: 165
B/T: S/R
School: Alvin CC (TX)
Year: Freshman
DOB: 8/3/00

SCOUTING REPORT:

Perfect Game (From 2018):
Odrick Pitre is a 2018 SS with a 5-10 160 lb. frame from Caguas, PR who attends Academia La Milagros. Medium frame with athletic, slender, highly projectable present build. Ran 60 yard dash in 7.25 seconds. Switch-hitter, sets up from right side with narrow stance, coils into back hip well in load, shows good hand speed onto line drive plane, does a good job controlling the barrel and hitting hard liners. Similar set up from left side, compact path out front without much weight shift, showed better bat speed and juice off the barrel from the right side. Very good defensively in the infield, smooth footwork to both sides with good range to both sides as well, fields cleanly and makes clean, efficient transfers. Showed very good arm strength across the diamond, with throws clocked up to 89 MPH. Good student.

ROUND 36 (1093rd overall): Keegan McCarville, RHP

Image
(Photo: Twitter)

Height: 6'1
Weight: 210
B/T: R/R
School: Santa Clara University
Year: Junior
DOB: 2/3/98

SCOUTING REPORT:

Perfect Game (From 2018):
McCarville was one of the pitching leaders on a very good South Mountain team, accruing a team-leading 96 innings on the mound this spring. He went 7-3 with a 2.44 ERA across those innings, racking up 112 strikeouts as compared to only 18 walks. He's a sinker-slider type of pitcher who is also a bit undersized, working in the 88-92 mph range for the most part with good sink and excellent strike-throwing ability. His slider is an average pitch that works quite well when paired with his fastball, but McCarville does not project to miss as many bats at the professional level as he did in junior college.

Height: 6'4

SCOUTING REPORT:

Baseball America:
Beethe is a 6-foot-4, 210-pound righthander that sits in the 93-95 mph range with his fastball. He throws a below-average breaking ball and has difficulty throwing consistent strikes.

Prep Baseball Report:
Three-quarter slot righty with an unorthodox arm action. FB 90-94 mph, had some jump out of his hand. Showed an occasional flat 79-81 SL. Tough day finding strike zone, struggled to find timing with delivery and as a result a consistent release point.

(Photo: University of Miami)

Height: 6'5
Weight: 225
B/T: R/R
School: Miami
Year: Junior
DOB: 12/8/97

SCOUTING REPORT:

Baseball America (From 2018):
Our No. 1 prospect in the Florida Collegiate League last summer, Keysor is a Miami signee with a low-90s fastball that can touch 95. His low-80s changeup has some late movement and he mixes in a high-70s curveball with promising break.

Prep Baseball Report (From 2018):
The long, lanky right-hander did not have the same command and velocity as he did in the fall. Was up to 95 in the fall, was 89-91 the entire outing. Struggled with command early, but showed the ability to make an adjustment and work seven innings. The fastball has some late arm side run and life when down in the zone. The slider was below average on the outing. Soft, slurvy and did not have much late action. Has shown a better slider in the fall. he changeup is his best off speed pitch. Has feel, throws from same fastball tunnel with late fade. There is deception and the fastball could play back up in the pen at the next level
