Drafted in the 1st round (12th overall) by the Houston Astros in 1993 (signed for $550,000)
Two of the very best arms in the draft belong to Old Dominion pitcher Wayne Gomes and Billy Wagner, who both average almost two strikeouts per inning... Wagner throws even harder than Gomes at times, despite his raw-boned 5-foot-10, 180-pound frame. He has two quality pitches, a fastball that routinely registers 95-96 mph on the fast radar gun and a hard curve that he has difficulty throwing for strikes. Because of Wagner's country upbringing scouts say he's naive about his talent and it might take him a little longer to add the polish necessary to pitch in the big leagues.
