Round Overall Team Player Position School 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.
18 577 New York Yankees Brady Lail RHP Bingham HS, South Jordan, Utah $225,000
Lail, an Arizona recruit, has a thin build at 6-foot-3 and 170 pounds. He'll flash above-average velocity but usually settles into the 85-88 mph range. The hand speed is there though, as Lail shows an above-average curveball and mixes in an occasional changeup. He has some effort in his delivery and the ball looks like it jumps out of his hand.
20 624 Washington Nationals James Brooks SS Utah
26 802 Cincinnati Reds Chase Rezac RHP Southern Utah
26 813 Arizona Diamondbacks Chris Capper RHP Brigham Young
Capper went 3-6, 2.97 for Brigham Young this year with 50 strikeouts and 21 walks over 67 innings. He has some effort in his delivery, tops out at 92 mph and mixes in a slurvy breaking ball for an out pitch. Scouts think his stuff could play up out of the bullpen in pro ball.
27 825 San Diego Padres Goose Kallunki 1B Utah Valley
33 1025 Milwaukee Brewers Austin Hall RHP Brigham Young
36 1099 Oakland Athletics Conor Williams RHP/OF Bingham HS, South Jordan, Utah
Williams should get drafted ahead of high school teammate Brady Lail because of his athleticism, two-way potential and arm strength. Utah is hoping Williams will get to campus and patrol its outfield next year, and he shows power potential with the bat, but pro scouts like him better on the mound. Utah would likely groom him to be a closer as well. He started pitching in the past year and shows intriguing arm strength, running his fastball up to 95 mph in short bursts. He flashes a tight breaking ball and will need to get more consistency and control. His arm strength is intriguing, as is his projectable 6-foot-3, 185-pound frame.
