Ronan Kopp
Name: Ronan Noah Kopp
Born: Jul 29, 2002 in Baldwin Park, CA
High School: Scottsdale Christian Academy, Phoenix
Junior College: South Mountain (Ariz.) JC
Ht.: 6'7" / Wt.: 250 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: L
Drafted in the 12th round (372nd overall) by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2021 (signed for $125,000)
Kopp was a tough evaluation for scouts coming out of high school in 2020 given his lack of innings and extreme variance in velocity from start to start, and there is still no clear direction either on his future potential or his signability. Originally committed to Arizona State, Kopp instead found his way to South Mountain (Ariz.) JC this spring, where he struck out 38 batters and walked 25 over 25.1 innings, posting a 2.84 ERA. Kopp’s size and lefthandedness are the attributes that would get him drafted, along with a fastball that touches 97 mph and an inconsistent but potentially plus breaking ball, but his erratic performance will give teams pause before calling his name. Some observers believe he’s not yet ready to move on to the next level, either college or pro ball, and that he’d be best served by returning to South Mountain for another year.
