32 976 Oakland Athletics Drew Granier RHP La.
Louisiana-Monroe righthander Drew Granier has more power in a similar physical package. At 6 feet, 179 pounds, he has a loose, whippy arm and has long had movement on his stuff. He gets swings and misses on his fastball and had 86 strikeouts in 86 innings as he pushed his fastball up to 94 mph. Granier's movement sometimes gets him in trouble, as his command lags behind--he walked 39 and hit 10 more batters, helping lead to a 4-5, 4.60 mark.
33 1013 San Diego Padres James Jones RHP La.
