    Chrest is a small and skinny, 5-foot-11, 170-pound righthander who mostly pitches in the upper 80s, but teams are excited about his future physical projection and what he could look like in five years. He’ll still be 18 on draft day and needs to add strength, but has shown impressive feel to spin a slider around 80 mph that is a go-to secondary offering. He has touched lower 90s but for the most part it’s below-average present velocity that should improve as he adds more weight and strength to his lean frame. Chrest is committed to Jacksonville.
