40 1220 New York Mets David Gonzalez RHP Ga.
Scouts like Gonzalez quite a bit, and the Georgia signee had a good spring, winning his first 11 decisions for a team that was 31-0 until losing in the state semifinals. Gonzalez touches 93 with his fastball, which usually parks in the 88-92 range. He's shown a feel for spinning a breaking ball, flashing above-average sliders and curveballs as well as a chance to keep the pitches separate. His biggest issue is his lack of projection. At 6-foot-1, 210 pounds, Gonzalez is physically mature. He could add a changeup but likely is what he is in terms of stuff. Scouts are in on the makeup but have to buy him away from the Bulldogs.
