Estes emerged from tiny Paraclete (Lancaster, Calif.) High to make the Area Code Games and represent California in the States Play series at Globe Life Park last summer. He kept evaluators making the long drive to the Antelope Valley this spring with an uptick in his velocity. Estes is slightly undersized as a 6-foot-1 righthander but has a strong frame. His fastball sits 90-91 mph and touches 93 mph, and he backs it up with a slurvy breaking ball that could turn into an average slider as he adds strength. Estes has a mature body that lacks projection, but his two-pitch mix projects well in a bullpen. He is committed to Long Beach State but is considered signable.
