Drafted in the 9th round (286th overall) by the Houston Astros in 2019 (signed for $148,400)
The younger brother of White Sox minor leaguer Blake Battenfield, Peyton Battenfield helped his draft stock with an impressive Big 10 tournament. He'd been sitting 88-92 mph for most of the season, but he bumped up to 94-95 mph late in the season. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound righthander attacks hitters with an average fastball and a curveball from a high three-quarters delivery and then drops down to mix in a changeup and cutter from a lower arm slot. Battenfield was 4-3, 2.91 with 71 strikeouts in 58.2 innings and a .186 average against out of the Cowboys' bullpen. While he was a college reliever, there's a solid chance he could head out in pro ball as a starter.
