Drafted in the 12th round (359th overall) by the Minnesota Twins in 2019 (signed for $125,000)
A tremendous strike thrower over his first two seasons with St. John’s, Mooney was named the Big East Freshman of the Year and the Big East Pitcher of the Year after a 2017 season in which he threw 100 innings and posted a 1.71 ERA with 88 strikeouts and just 16 walks. He was just the second player to earn both honors in the same year. Mooney followed that up with a similarly strong sophomore campaign, but his junior season was ended after nine starts and 49.2 innings with Tommy John surgery. The injury likely explains an uncharacteristic 5.1 walks per nine—his previous high over a full season was 2.7—but also clouds his draft status. Mooney doesn’t have overwhelming stuff, with a fastball that sits in the 87-90 mph range, but it is a high spin rate pitch that generates more whiffs than would be expected.
