2016 MLB Draft Follow Lists – SEC Pitching

There’s so much talent in the SEC that trying to fit all of their 2016 MLB Draft prospects in one day’s worth of posts doesn’t make sense. The SEC deserves an entire week.

    You have Zach Brown pretty low on your list. The depth looks good in the SEC. As an Astros fan, I know first hand how a good college pitcher can turn out even when taken in the fifth round (Dallas Keuchel).

    • Rob Ozga says:

      Brown is such a tough evaluation for me. I can definitely see an argument for him ranking much, much higher than this; in fact, before actually putting the list together, I had assumed he’d fall no worse than ten or so with some sneaky first day pick upside. The very quick and perhaps too simplistic reason for being down on him was the lack of SEC dominance despite having damn good stuff across the board. His K/9’s over the years: 5.6, 6.9, and 6.9. His arm is too good to ignore and I’d be thrilled if my team took a shot on him beginning around round five or so, but the lack of a bat-missing track record leaves me with more questions than answers about his all-around profile. Could definitely see him being the type who takes off in pro ball with a minor or tweak or two learned through instruction because the stuff is that good, but I’d be too much of a wimp to use a premium pick to find out…for now.

    Vinson listed here at 31 has been a STOPPER that has helped propel Aggies to top rankings in last two years. He has grown so much in last 6 weeks as a pitcher as well. If anyone is watching, his WAR has to have soared lately. Diamond in the rough Andrew Vinson, nowhere on many radars. Who is the first to come to the rescue in a crisis game? He’s averaging over 2K’s per inning in last few outings and as a shortstop is a 5th infielder.
    Last ball hit hard against him was (soloHR) in his start against Vandy. It was the lone Earned run of the 4 runs scored during his innings and he left that game with a lead at 5-4. Keep an eye on Vinson ….he’ll be the next Colby Lewis on the mound with more velocity.
