2 76 Cleveland Indians Trey Haley RHP Texas $1,250,000
Earlier in the spring, Haley had a chance to be the first pitcher drafted out of Texas. He generated buzz by touching 95 mph with projection remaining in his 6-foot-4, 190-pound frame. He couldn't sustain that velocity when crosscheckers and scouting directors came in to see him, usually pitching at 91-92 mph in the first inning before sitting at 88-89 mph. He tends to overthrow, putting a lot of effort and a head jerk into his delivery when he does. He flashes a promising curveball and a changeup, but he's not consistent. He struggles to repeat his mechanics, which affects his control and command. Like many of the most promising high school pitchers in Texas this spring, Haley will be difficult to sign. It may take first-round money to lure him away from Rice, and the difference between his present and his future is too great for clubs to make that kind of investment.
