Drafted in the 8th round (234th overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2018 (signed for $171,800)
Spears has been a very durable member of Miami’s rotation for three seasons, which isn’t all that surprising when you consider he’s 6-foot-7, 237 pounds. Spears doesn’t have an above-average pitch to turn to, but he’s had some success (2-3, 3.68 with 68 strikeouts in 58.2 innings as of late April) because he’s able to mix and match a fastball, curveball and changeup and has least average control. Pitching from a low 3/4 arm slot, his 88-93 mph fastball is just good enough to keep hitters from getting too comfortable. and should help him get his name called either late on day two or early on day three of the draft.
