    View Draft Report
    Bautista pitched on the showcase circuit in high school and showed promising arm strength this spring at Cypress (Calif.) JC, although he struggled to a 5.51 ERA. He has a physical, 6-foot-3 frame and a fastball that sits 93-95 mph. His delivery is stiff and his secondaries are very raw, but he hasn't thrown that many innings in his career and could improve with more experience. His arm strength gives him a chance to be selected on the draft's third day.
