Drafted in the 2nd round (66th overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2001 (signed for $2,000,000)
The top lefthander in the draft, Gosling had trouble harnessing his lively repertoire during his freshman and sophomore seasons--as evidenced by 76 walks in 96 innings. After being shut down with a tender elbow for six weeks this spring, the 6-foot-2, 210-pounder returned with improved mechanics and much sharper control. He regularly pitches at 92-93 mph, and has touched 94-95 with command of a solid breaking ball and changeup. Gosling has been nearly unhittable everywhere he's pitched. Opponents batted .146 off him last year and just .191 entering NCAA tournament play in 2001. He's getting better now that he's learned to repeat his delivery and throws strikes with all three pitches.
