Drafted in the 40th round (1232nd overall) by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2012
Sawyer was 5-foot-11 and topped out at 91 mph in high school, and while he hasn't gotten any taller in two years at Howard, he has added some serious velocity. The 185-pounder has a lightning-fast arm that produces fastballs that sit at 92-93 mph and peak at 96. He gets too concerned with radar guns however, throwing at maximum effort and losing command. He also throws a hard slider and profiles strictly as a reliever. Sawyer has been drafted twice previously, by the Reds in the 37th round in 2010 and by the Rangers in the 23rd round last year. He originally planned on transferring to Oklahoma in 2012 before returning to Howard, and he'll play at Oregon in 2013 if he doesn't turn pro.
