29 869 Cincinnati Reds Jason Braun RHP Ore.
Senior righthander Jason Braun at Corban College in Salem has interested scouts for his athleticism--he also played basketball at Corban his first three years there--and size at 6-foot-5 and 190 pounds. Braun has been up to 93 mph with his fastball from a low three-quarters arm slot. He also throws a slider and a split-finger fastball. Braun has not played summer ball and scouts aren't sure how much he loves the game. He didn't face high-quality competition this year and lost all three games he started against NAIA power Lewis-Clark State (Idaho), but could be an interesting project as a pick in the late teens or early 20s.
