16 488 Milwaukee Brewers Stosh Wawrzasek RHP British Columbia $100,000
righthander Stosh Wawrzasek elicited split opinions from scouts. He's the best amateur pitcher in Canada, with two solid-average pitches in a 90-92 mph fastball and slurvy breaking ball that he can throw for strikes. He'll have to improve his breaking ball to make it a strikeout pitch in pro ball. He's committed to Florida International and would fit in immediately there as a freshman thanks to his excellent mound presence and poise. Wawrzasek competes and has a durable frame at 6-foot-1, 225 pounds, though he lacks projection. He pitched well in late April in front of scouts and crosscheckers in British Columbia with his club team, the Langley Blaze (Lawrie and Morrison are among his teammates), and could draw interest in the sixth- to 10th-round range.
