37 1128 Boston Red Sox Matt Koch RHP Iowa
The state's best high school prospect is righthander Matt Koch, but scouts think he's not ready for pro ball and would be better off fulfilling his commitment to Louisville. Koch, whose father Scott is his head coach at Washington High (Cherokee), is a projectable 6-foot-3, 185-pounder. He can touch 92 mph with good run and little effort, though he sat at 87-88 for much of the spring. He also has some feel for a slider. Koch is a four-sport standout, also lettering in football, basketball and track.
