44 1341 Boston Red Sox Ben Whitmore LHP Calif.
Whitmore showed a fastball reaching 91-92 mph last summer in the California Collegiate League. He transferred from NAIA Fresno Pacific to Fresno CC to take advantage of his rising draft stock but rarely touched the 90s this spring. He sat more in the 85-88 mph range, with a solid-average 12-to-6 curveball and straight changeup. He works to both sides of the plate, probably his greatest strength besides being lefthanded.
