Drafted in the 6th round (214th overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2012 (signed for $135,000)
John was a rare draft-eligible freshman a year ago, when the Astros selected him in the 28th round. He turned 19 and had Tommy John surgery shortly after graduating from high school in 2009, then redshirted in 2010 while recovering from his elbow reconstruction. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder began this spring as Oklahoma's closer but quickly asserted himself as the Sooners' No. 1 starter. He doesn't have a plus pitch but hitters don't get good swings against his 86-88 mph fastball, curveball, slider and changeup. He gets good life on his fastball, which tops out at 90 mph, and his clean delivery allows him to command all four offerings.
