2017 MLB Draft Prospect Nate Pearson Hits 101 MPH

Central Florida JC righthander Nate Pearson reached the triple digits in a bullpen session on Monday night. Hitting 100 isn’t new for Pearson, who first accomplished the feat in a bullpen last fall. On Monday, however, the hard-throwing righty cleared 100 and hit 101, with some scouts reporting that he hit 102.

Pearson is currently the No. 32 prospect in the class, and he’s projected to go in the first round, though Monday’s performance could drive him even further up draft boards.
