19 565 Pittsburgh Pirates Josh Urban RHP Texas
Josh Urban attracted a lot of scouts after he threw 91-93 mph in an early scrimmage, but he sat more at 86-89 mph for much of the spring. Still, he's a projectable 6-foot-4, 215-pounder who throws strikes. He needs to tighten and add more velocity to his curveball and develop his changeup, but it's not hard to envision him becoming a premium draft pick after three years at Texas.
