Dewon Brazelton, rhp
Middle Tennessee State


On a Team USA staff that featured Southern California's Mark Prior and UCLA's Josh Karp, Brazelton went 6-0 and set a record with a 0.65 ERA. He showed that was no fluke this spring, going 13-1, 1.44 in 14 starts before the NCAA tournament, tossing 10 complete games and posting a 148-22 strikeout-walk ratio in 119 innings. Opponents batted just .181 against him. Brazelton has a great body (6-foot-6, 210 pounds), a great fastball (92-97 mph, and he takes that velocity deep into games) and a great changeup he throws with confidence. His curveball is his third-best pitch and needs work. Known for his free-spirited personality, he has matured and become more composed as a junior. He's one of the draft's top five talents and should be the easiest player to sign from that group.
