14 441 Los Angeles Angels Sam Selman LHP Texas
No player in Texas has shot up draft boards as much as lefthander Sam Selman, who wasn't known to most scouts or recruiters last summer. Despite being extremely skinny at 6-foot-3 and 160 pounds, he drew attention by reaching 94 mph this spring. He's raw, and his fastball would drop to as low as 84 and sat at 86-91 mph by the end of the season. He has a loose arm and projectable frame, but the rest of his game is a work in progress. He has inconsistent feel for a slow curveball and little command. He's also a private-school kid from a wealthy family who has committed to Vanderbilt, so Selman is going to be difficult to sign. If the Commodores can refine him, he could be an early pick in the 2012 draft.
