Drafted in the 9th round (258th overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2021 (signed for $30,000)
A 6-foot-1, 220-pound lefthander, Rice was Kennesaw State’s Friday starter this spring and he turned in a career year, posting a 1.93 ERA over 13 starts and 74.2 innings, with 79 strikeouts (9.5 K/9) and 24 walks (2.9 BB/9). Rice has been mostly a two-pitch starter this spring, with a fastball in the low 90s that touches 95-96 mph at his best and a low-80s slider that has good downward action when it’s on. The pitch is inconsistent, and Rice relies heavily on a fastball that he shows good feel moving around the zone. Rice is old for the class and will be 24 on draft day.
