Anthony Banda
Name: Frank Anthony Banda
Born: Aug 10, 1993 in Sinton, Texas USA
High School: Sinton (Texas) HS
College: San Jacinto (Texas) JC
Ht.: 6'2" / Wt.: 225 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: L
Drafted in the 10th round (335th overall) by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2012 (signed for $125,000)
After turning down the Diamondbacks as a 33rd-round pick out of high school in 2011, Banda claimed a spot in the rotation on a San Jacinto team that finished runner-up at the Junior College World Series. The 6-foot-3, 185-pounder has yet to fill out, which bodes well for adding velocity to his 87-89 mph fastball. His sharp curveball is his best pitch, and he made strides with his changeup this spring. He has a long, loose arm but needs to do a better job of attacking the strike zone.
