28 846 Arizona Diamondbacks Brian Budrow RHP Utah
Senior righthander Brian Budrow spent his first two seasons at Oregon State, where he was part of back-to-back College World Series winners, but he totaled just nine innings in those two years and transferred to Utah to get more time on the mound. He has shown scouts an 88-91 mph fastball with sink and a slider. He could get a chance as a senior sign.
31 951 Los Angeles Angels Jordan Whatcott RHP Utah
The Cinderella story of the conference tournaments this year was sixth-seeded Utah defeating San Diego State twice to earn its first regional berth since 1960. Leading the Utes was senior righthander Jordan Whatcott. He has a hard, thick body and repeats his delivery well. As a pitcher and second baseman at South Mountain (Ariz.) CC last year, he was 88-90 mph off the mound, and his stuff took a step forward this spring as he focused on pitching. His fastball sat between 90-92 mph, and touched 95, and he mixed in a firm, 83-84 mph slider that is an out pitch, as well as a work-in-progress changeup. His command needs work, but the biggest knocks on Whatcott are his size (6 feet and 200 pounds) and age. After serving a two-year Mormon mission in Brazil, he's older than most draft-eligible players. The team that drafts him will be giving him a nice present, as June 10 is his 24th birthday. So he'll need to be on a fast track, but he has a great work ethic.
