    View Draft Report
    Yamamoto took advantage of scouting heat present during a mid-May matchup with potential first-rounder Kodi Mederios. Yamamoto won the duel 2-0 and gained attention with excellent stuff for a high school pitcher while lacking ideal size for a high draft pick. He's listed at 6-foot-1 but likely stands closer to 5-foot-11. He has good control of his three-pitch mix and some scouts grade him with three solid-average pitches, with his slider perhaps earning above-average grades. He pitches at 88-90 mph, topping out at 92-93 at times, and knows how to use his change and curve. He's strong-bodied and could step right into Arizona's weekend rotation as a freshman.
