    View Draft Report
    Leath only threw 6.1 innings this season thanks to a hamstring injury that shut him down the rest of the way, but he’s dominated hitters in the brief time he’s been on the mound over the last two years at Tennessee. While he’s thrown just 25 innings for the Volunteers after transferring in from Blinn (Texas) College, Leath has a career 1.08 ERA with 37 strikeouts (13.3 K/9) and just seven walks (2.5 BB/9). He pitches in the low 90s with his fastball and can get to 94-95 mph but used a power breaking ball in the low 80s as his primary pitch and he’s gotten enough swing and miss with the offering to project it as above-average. Leath has a reliever look but a real weapon with his breaking ball.
