Drafted in the 5th round (166th overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2012 (signed for $250,000)
Sampson was a highly ranked prospect in high school but needed Tommy John surgery during his senior year, so he didn't get drafted and wound up going the junior college route instead of honoring his commitment to Oregon. Sampson's brother, Julian, spent four years in the Phillies system. Adrian was a 16th-round pick by the Marlins last year, but did not sign and projects to go significantly higher this time around. His fastball has been better than it was last year. He generally has been sitting in the low 90s and touching 94 mph, though he was more in the 87-91 mph in some stretches. His best pitch is his curveball, which is already an above-average pitch with sharp, late break, and he's showing improved feel for his changeup. Sampson pitches with above-average control and command and has the confidence to throw any of his pitches in any count. He is again committed to Oregon but is considered more likely to sign this year.
