J.P. Howell, lhp
Jesuit HS, Sacramento


What Howell lacks in size and velocity, he more than makes up for in pitching savvy. He's a lefthander with four major league pitches: an 86-89 mph fastball, a nasty 83 mph cutter, a plus curveball and a plus changeup that he locates with precision. One of the most advanced hurlers on the board, he stands at 6-foot-1 and is still growing. Howell carved up high school competition, not allowing an earned run in 49 innings during the regular season.
