6 177 San Francisco Giants Matt Graham RHP Texas $500,000
Texas area scouts still haven't figured Graham out. He excited them when he emerged as a potential first-rounder in the summer and fall before his junior season, but he has had a Jekyll-and-Hyde ride since. His velocity plunged to the mid-80s at the start of last summer, though it had crept up to the low 90s by the end of the showcase circuit. This spring, Graham has had outings where his fastball has sat at 86-88 mph and others where it has parked at 90-93 mph. He'll mix a power curveball with some ineffective breaking balls, and he's show the makings of an effective changeup but doesn't use it often enough. Graham has an athletic 6-foot-3, 195-pound frame but he throws with a herky-jerky delivery that contains a lot of effort. He needs to clean up and repeat his mechanics, and to improve control that's as inconsistent as his stuff. Graham has committed to North Carolina but may be signable if drafted in the first five rounds.
