Drafted in the 8th round (267th overall) by the Los Angeles Angels in 2012 (signed for $127,500)
South Florida finished its season playing well thanks to a strong pitching staff led by 6-foot-8, 240-pound senior lefty Andrew Barbosa, a 24-year-old with a long medical history. Meanwhile, scouts had little to go on with set-up man Austin Adams, a quick-armed 6-foot-2, 185-pounder who has found the strike zone under the tutelage of Chuck Hernandez, the Bulls' veteran pitching coach. Adams had shown a fastball that has been in the 91-95 mph range to go with a 55 curveball. He'd walked 23 in just 10 innings his first two seasons and wasn't South Florida's closer this year, so he's hard to scout. But his 32-9 strikeout-walk ratio in 26 innings is a significant improvement from his past performance. His lack of track record clouds his draft status.
