Jake Barrett
Name: Jake Dalton Barrett
Born: Jul 22, 1991 in Mesa, Ariz. USA
High School: Desert Ridge HS, Mesa, Ariz.
College: Arizona State
Ht.: 6'2" / Wt.: 240 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 3rd round (120th overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2012 (signed for $392,900)
On talent alone, Barrett has first-round stuff. Pitchers in the Pacific-12 conference with fastballs that sit in the mid-90s and touch 98 to go along with above-average secondary stuff (a hard breaking ball and a splitter) don't typically last too long in the draft. Barrett also has prototypical physicality at 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds. But scouts have questions about his durability. At least two scouts have said Barrett didn't sign with the Blue Jays as a third-round pick out of high school because the team had questions about his physical, though he has never missed any time at Arizona State. A starter in high school and last year for the Sun Devils, Barrett moved to the bullpen this year, and that's where scouts believe he'll stay as a pro. He has the pure stuff to help a big league bullpen in a hurry.
