    View Draft Report
    Pivetta is a Canadian who spent time with the country's junior national team and went undrafted out of high school. He has blossomed at New Mexico JC and intrigues scouts with his 6-foot-5, 215-pound build and a fastball that has been clocked as high as 97 mph. As a starter, he pitches more in the 90-93 mph range. His slider and changeup show flashes of being above-average but have been inconsistent this spring. Pivetta has some funk to his delivery, as he's a bit of a short strider with a low three-quarters arm slot. A team will take a chance on Pivetta around the fifth round because he's seen as a fresh arm with potential. He has committed to New Mexico.
