Drafted in the 8th round (238th overall) by the Seattle Mariners in 2018 (signed for $167,400)
Illinois' closer has effectively shut the door on hitters around the Big Ten, as his 93-96 mph fastball is enough to blow away hitters and he mixes in an above-average slider as well. He's even flashed an average changeup, although he barely ever throws it. Gerber is a pure relief prospect with a reliever's delivery, which limits how high he will be drafted, but he has present stuff to handle a setup role and a track record of success (0-1, 2.74, 13 saves with 38 strikeouts and nine walks in 23 innings).
