Drafted in the 22nd round (659th overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2016
A two-time Pacific Coast All-Conference player at Southwestern (Calif.) JC prior to transferring to the University of Arizona for his junior year, Ginkel jumped onto the scouting radar in late April when he threw a mid-week complete game shutout against Arizona State. The California native pitched mostly out of the bullpen for the Wildcats en route to a 3-1, 3.24 record. A 26th round pick by Boston in 2015, Ginkel is still a bit of a mystery to scouts. He's got plenty of arm strength, pitching primarily off a fastball sitting 90-92 and touching as high as 96. The curveball has decent spin and he has feel for a changeup but his stuff is inconsistent. He has an easy, loose delivery and the ball gets on batters quickly, but he struggles at times to find the right arm slot. Ginkel could go towards the end of Day Two but more likely will be an early Day Three selection.
