8 245 St. Louis Cardinals Ryan Kulik LHP N.J. $58,000
Rowan lefty Ryan Kulik dominated Division III competition as a senior this spring, going 10-2, 1.72 with 144 strikeouts and 24 walks in 94 innings. Kulik is undersized but strong at 5-foot-11, 200 pounds. He has an average 89-91 mph fastball that touches 93, and he maintains his velocity deep into outings. Some scouts believe he could throw 94-95 in short stints in the bullpen, making him more attractive than Corey Young to some. His curveball and changeup are fringy, but he makes up for it with his competitiveness and ability to pound the zone. Like Young, Kulik should be drafted between the seventh and 12th rounds.
