Drafted in the 3rd round (103rd overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2012 (signed for $462,900)
Sandfort had some late draft helium as he pitched well down the stretch, including a late-April win against Oviedo High in the district championship. He struck out 10 in that game and touched 94 mph, and he was starting to grow into his 6-foot-5, 220-pound body. The Florida signee generally sits more in the 88-91 mph range and doesn't always hold his velocity. When he throws his curveball with power in the 75 mph range, it's an effective pitch, and he has some feel for an intriguing changeup.
