    A thickly-built, 6-foot-3, 200-pound righthander, Huggins certainly benefitted from having third baseman Cam Collier on the same Chipola (Fla.) JC team this spring—but he’s a strong pitching prospect and performed at a high level in 2022. He led Chipola in innings (73) and posted a 2.96 ERA over 14 starts, while striking out 97 batters and walking 32. Huggins throws a fastball in the low 90s that has been up to 96 and pairs the pitch with a hard, mid-80s slider that has good downer bite and a firm changeup in the upper 80s. He carries plenty of reliever risk and might be better going straight to a bullpen role at the next level, but he’ll also still be just 19 years old on draft day.
