Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
4 155 Milwaukee Brewers Tyler Wagner RHP Utah $250,000
Wagner will likely be the first player drafted out of Utah. He has a solid pitcher's build at 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds. Used as the Utes' closer, Wagner didn't have a great year statistically, but his stuff was strong all season. His fastball sits in the 91-93 mph range and he touches 95-96. He flashes an above-average slider and has a good changeup, though he doesn't need it much.
14 433 Kansas City Royals Parker Morin C Utah
Morin was an iron man this year, starting all of Utah's 56 games, including 43 behind the plate, and led the team in batting (.314). Yet his best attribute is his defense. He's a quality receiver with average arm strength and solid leadership. He shows good hand-eye coordination in his lefthanded swing, but not a lot of juice, so he'll be mainly a singles hitter at the next level. Overall, he profiles as a backup in pro ball, and Utah expects him back for his senior season.
