German has risen up draft boards this year by dominating. The Atlantic Sun has produced pitcher after pitcher, but few have posted a 1.36 ERA like German has this year. He has an easily plus fastball that sits 92-94 mph and touches 96 mph. His development as a pro will depend on improving the consistency of his slurvy breaking ball. It's at least an average pitch, but with a little more consistency, it could end up being above-average if he can tighten the shape of it. The curveball generally is more slurve than curve, but every now and then he tightens it up to a harder, 11-to-5 offering that flashes above-average. German has a strong frame and solid delivery with athleticism and good strikethrowing that could propel him into the fourth or fifth rounds.
