Stodolka has made a steady progression up the draft ladder this spring, inching into the first half of the first round with a string of solid outings. He came out of the gate throwing 90-92 mph, topping at 93, after being around 88 a year ago when scouts weren't sure whether he had more value as a pitcher or hitter. That debate has been settled. He went 10-0, 0.67 with 111 strikeouts in 52 innings, while displaying two above-average pitches and sound mechanics. Stodolka has committed to UCLA but is almost a cinch to sign.
