    A strong track record in the Cape Cod League had positioned Brusa to be one of the top college bats available for 2015, but nothing went right for him as a junior, from an elbow injury to modest performance after a poor start. A different Brusa showed up as a senior. Healthier, Brusa thrived under first-year head coach Mike Neu, putting together his best college season. His 14 homers ranked among the top 50 in the nation as he's shown a more mature approach and played with less pressure. Brusa has identified breaking balls better, laying off them and showing the bat speed to catch up to good fastballs. He's shown a solid-average arm and runs well enough to play right field. Brusa could go out 15-20 rounds higher than he did in 2015, when he was taken in the 23rd round.
