2013 State Draft Report: Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania lacks high-end talent this season, and might not have a player taken in the first five rounds, but the state offers solid depth, particularly at the college level.

THIS YEAR’S CROP
***** One for the books
**** Banner year
*** Solid, not spectacular
** Not up to par
* Nothing to see here
Rating compares this year’s group to what a state typically produces, not to other states

The talent isn’t limited to the big-name schools, either, as there is some intriguing talent in Pennsylvania’s small colleges. Tim Mayza runs his fastball up to 93 mph from the left side and has a good changeup. He has good pitchability but will need to improve his breaking ball, as it’s below-average right now. Righthander Rob Rogers has a low 90s fastball with good run. Outfielder Leon Stimpson started his career at UNC Asheville, but wound up at Alvernia after a coaching change. He has a wiry frame and runs well.
