Jesse Foppert, rhp
San Francisco


A recruited walk-on as a first baseman, Foppert's draft status skyrocketed with his conversion to the mound. He didn't take to pitching until last summer, and he still plays first base and DH between starts. Scouts love his fresh arm and how effortlessly he throws and locates his 92 mph fastball. The 6-foot-5, 215-pound righthander has touched 94 mph, though his heater loses its movement at that speed. He gets better life on his two-seamer. His slider has the potential to be a plus pitch, and he shows the makings of a reliable changeup.
