    View Draft Report
    A shutdown reliever for UNC Wilmington, Cota throws a plus fastball that's been up to 96 mph with plus life and an average breaking ball. After splitting time as both an outfielder and reliever early in his college career, Cota has been strictly a reliever in 2018, where he's posted a 1.95 ERA with 44 strikeouts and 18 walks in 32.1 innings. Because of his two-pitch repertoire, Cota projects as a reliever at the next level. His fastball sits in the 90-94 mph range, but the life on the pitch should allow it to play up in short stints. Cota throws a 12-to-6 curveball and goes right after hitters with both pitches. He has sprinkled in a changeup at times, but it's well behind his other offerings.
