Boatman jumped on radars when he beat Matt Manning in a playoff matchup as a high school sophomore. He began his college career at UCLA but transferred back home to Sacramento (Calif.) City JC and went 2-0, 2.17 with 33 strikeouts and five walks in 29 innings for the Panthers this spring. Boatman is a big righthander at 6-foot-5, 225 pounds and has lots of raw arm strength. His fastball sits 93-94 mph and touches 96 out of his big frame. His slider is a fringy offering that shows good shape but not much spin. Boatman has fringy control, although he showed an improved ability to limit his walks this spring. Interested teams are banking on his slider improving in player development to help him become a power-armed, two-pitch reliever. He is in the mix to be taken on the draft’s third day.
