Drafted in the 12th round (358th overall) by the Boston Red Sox in 2016 (signed for $115,000)
Gorst gave no indications he was headed for one of the best seasons in Georgia Tech history. He had 7.59 and 4.81 ERAs in his first two seasons, with 48 walks and 48 strikeouts. He had surgery to remove bone spurs in his elbow in the offseason, though, added a cutter to go with his 88-92 mph fastball in the fall, and took off in the spring. His 0.55 ERA would be a Tech record if he had one more inning of work to qualify. He pounds the zone (13 walks in 49 IP), competes well and has some deception in his delivery to complete the package.
