6 193 Kansas City Royals Zach Lovvorn RHP Ala. $275,000
Oxford High has three pitchers who could be drafted in Lovvorn and fellow righties Tucker Simpson (a 6-foot-7 Florida commit) and Jackson Stephens (an Alabama signee). Lovvorn was the team's No. 3 starter much of the season but started rising up draft boards with a strong one-hit effort in the National High School Invitational. The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder showed an average fastball that touched 94 mph at times and had above-average life. At his best, his slider gave him an average secondary pitch, and he throws a changeup. Lovvorn's stuff backed up as he came under more scrutiny late in the spring.
18 562 Cincinnati Reds Jackson Stephens RHP/3B Ala. $100,000
Stephens played third base and pitched in high school and has similarities to former Alabama stalwart Jake Smith. He has solid righthanded power and decent agility at third, while sitting in the upper 80s with a solid changeup and soft curve on the mound.
