Drafted in the 11th round (330th overall) by the Cincinnati Reds in 2021 (signed for $272,500)
Guilliams is one of the younger collegiate players in the class after graduating high school in 2020—he ranked as the No. 217 player in the class at the time. Now draft-eligible a year later out of JC of Central Florida, Guilliams struck out 49 batters in 33.2 innings this spring and posted a 2.41 ERA over six starts. He impressed scouts with a fastball in the 92-95 mph range and a curveball around 80 mph that has impressive late power through the zone and got plus grades from scouts. He’s also thrown a firm, upper-80s changeup that has significant arm-side running action and looks like a potential weapon against lefthanded hitters. Guilliams is listed at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds, and will have just turned 19 on draft day. He throws from a higher, three-quarter arm slot and has plenty of arm speed and a short arm action in the back, but there’s plenty of effort and recoil in his delivery that could portend a future bullpen role. He is committed to Florida.
