Drummond has been drafted three times and attended four colleges, but his winding path may finally be leading him to pro ball. The Brewers took him in the 34th round out of high school in California in 2008, but he headed to Arizona State instead. He transferred before baseball season started, going to Orange Coast (Calif.) JC and spending the 2009 season there before transferring to San Diego. He redshirted in 2010 and then pitched two seasons for the Toreros, getting drafted in the 34th round by the Nationals in 2011 and the 38th round by the Athletics last year. He did not sign but then became ineligible at San Diego, so he transferred to NAIA Arizona Christian for his senior year. He couldn't get eligible there either, so he has been working out with the team and at Arizona spring training complexes. Drummond has a big, strong frame at 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds. Plenty of scouts in the Phoenix area have seen his bullpen sessions, and while he pitched in the 89-92 mph range last year, he was up to 96 mph this spring. He flashes a plus slider and mixes in an occasional curveball and changeup. At 23, Drummond will likely be moved along quickly as a power bullpen arm.
