It's rare for a high school pitcher from Minnesota to be selected in the top two rounds of the draft. The only three so far who have been picked that high are Dan Carey (2nd round, 1967), Michael Olson (2, 1980) and Brad Hand (2, 2008). Righthander Mitch Brown from Century High in Rochester will likely join that club this year.
Subscribers can read Brown’s scouting report here, but below is video of the San Diego recruit shot during a Team One Midwest workout last July. The video was provided by our scouting partner, Baseball Factory.
