15 454 Texas Rangers Keith Campbell RHP Wash.
Everett CC has produced some high draft picks over the past few years, from Mason Tobin to Zach Simons to Aaron Cunningham. This year's first pick for the Trojans will be righthander Keith Campbell. While most of Everett's players come from western Washington, Campbell came all the way from Taylorsville, S.C. After having Tommy John surgery and missing his senior year of high school, he rehabbed at a facility in sleepy Monroe, Wash., and got to know Everett head coach Levi Lacey. Campbell has shown he is healthy now by flashing an 89-93 mph fastball, along with a power slider and plus curveball. At 6-foot-2, 195 pounds, Campbell is a good athlete who runs a 6.9-second 60 and can dunk a basketball. He's also a fierce competitor who wants the ball in big-game situations. Coming from an over-the-top arm slot, Campbell's fastball shows good life. He repeats his arm slot when he throws his slider, and at 80 mph it looks like a fastball for the first 50 feet before taking a hard, sharp turn. He's working on his fastball command and developing a better changeup. Campbell has just six college starts under his belt, but he has already shown good velocity with tight breaking pitches and has room to improve.
