Drafted in the 11th round (336th overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2013 (signed for $100,000)
Louisville matched a school record with 46 regular-season victories this year, thanks in large part to the three pitchers in their weekend rotation, who all should get drafted in top 10 rounds. Dace Kime and Jeff Thompson figure to go first, but it's Green who was the Cardinals' Friday starter. A 37th-round pick by the Blue Jays out of an Illinois high school in 2010, he spent most of his first two college seasons in the bullpen. He excels at commanding and pitching off his fastball, which sits at 90-92 mph and touches 94. He uses his 6-foot-4, 216-pound frame to pitch on a steep downhill plane. Green has made progress with his slider, but it's still a below-average offering, as is his changeup. He doesn't miss a lot of bats because hitters sit on his fastball, though he does get a lot of early-count groundouts. He could be headed to the bullpen as a pro.
