28 844 Texas Rangers Derek Law RHP Pa.
Righthander Derek Law's father, Joe, reached the major league for four days in the late 1970s with the Athletics but never appeared in a game. The younger Law caught scouts' attention at the Perfect Game/World Wood Bat Championships in Jupiter, Fla., last fall, running his fastball up to 93 mph. He struck out 13 in a no-hitter in his first game this season, but his velocity has been down all spring, topping out at 88-90 and sitting in the 81-84 range down the stretch. His delivery needs work. His curveball and slider can both be better-than-average pitches when he's on, especially the curve. Law is committed to Miami Dade CC but is considered signable in the top 15 to 20 rounds.
