    View Draft Report
    A hard-throwing righthander who popped up this spring delivering low-90s heat from a labored delivery, Solomon transferred from Trinidad State (Utah) Junior College and was described by one scout as the "Nuke LaLoosh of this year's draft. He'll throw one on the black and then he'll hit the bull." He has a stiff front leg, landing on his heel, and has trouble finding a consistent release point. He pitches at 87-88 mph but flashes a fastball that has touched 96 mph. He'll also show a hammer curveball with sharp, late action.
