In picking UCLA righthander Gerrit Cole with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, management added a 6-foot-4, 220-pound flamethrower with a 101-mph fastball to a collection that already included the three amateur arms they added last summer — Jameson Taillon, Stetson Allie and Luis Heredia — through the draft and, in Heredia's case, an international signing with a total cost of $11.6 million.
