16 491 Milwaukee Brewers Carlos Rodon LHP N.C.
An important part of a quality North Carolina State recruiting class, Rodon may not make it to campus because he's left-handed and athletic. At 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds with room to fill out, Rodon has been inconsistent this spring but gives scouts a lot to like. When he's on, he features an 88-92 mph fastball, a curveball and slider with solid command. The slider is arguably his best secondary pitch, and both pitches are sharp and show plus potential. On off nights, Rodon has dipped into the mid-80s and struggled with command. While that may scare some teams off, others see a raw pitcher who will benefit from advanced coaching. Consistency with his mechanics, tempo and arm slot could help him blossom. Because of the raw material, Rodon could see himself gone before the fourth round concludes.
