    Perhaps the best No. 2 pitcher in the high school ranks, Pogue has been the 1b to Carter Stewart for Eau Gallie (Melbourne, Fla.) High this spring and bears a striking resemblance to the likely first-round pick with a 6-foot-5, 215-pound frame. Pogue's current stuff isn't quite as loud as Stewart's, although Pogue consistently throws in the 91-93 mph range with a heavy, sinking fastball that has good angle. He also has the makings of an above-average, 77-81 mph curveball with 12-to-6 shape that shows late-breaking action and depth at times, but the pitch remains inconsistent. He's flashed a low-80s changeup with solid armspeed, giving him three viable offerings down the line. He might be best served enrolling at Florida, where he can sharpen his secondary pitches as well as his command. He has the traits of a starting pitcher at the next level and scouts have seen him frequently this spring.
