View Draft ReportDragmire is a 6-foot-1, 190-pound righthander that the Blue Jays signed away from a commitment to Nevada. He's a very good athlete that also played football and basketball in high school. On the mound, Dragmire's fastball sits in the 88-91 mph range with good sink. He mixes in a slider and a changeup, but it's the sinking action on his fastball and his athleticism that stands out the most.
Organization Prospect Rankings
Dragmire was a three-sport athlete at Sacramento's Bradshaw Christian School, where ex-big leaguer Greg Vaughn is an assistant coach. He won a section title in baseball and was a 2,000-yard rusher in foot- ball, plus a double-digit scorer in basketball. A $250,000 bonus as a 17th-round pick signed him away from a Nevada baseball scholarship in 2011, and he has progressed enough for the Blue Jays to protect him on the 40-man roster. Dragmire produced ugly numbers at high Class A Dunedin in 2015, but his fastball has become a plus pitch. Aside from 92-94 mph velocity, including occasional peaks at 97, it has bowling-ball sink that has helped him give up just three home runs in 140 innings the last two seasons. His changeup is his best secondary pitch and at times mirrors the sink on his fastball, and he had nearly three times as many groundouts as flyouts in 2015. Dragmire's slider grades as below-average, but club officials believe his sinker alone can get him to the big leagues as a middle reliever in the Seth Maness mold. He will head to Double-A New Hampshire in 2016, and the Jays hope improved infield defense leads to better results.
