Milbrandt’s journey up draft boards began last summer, as he impressed scouts at the Area Code games. With some rawness still present in his game, Milbrandt is a classic projection arm. At 6-foot-1, 188 pounds, the Missouri native has plenty of room to add size and strength. Pitching this spring with the classic full windup delivery, Milbrandt is deliberate up to his balance point. Once gathered, the loose, quick righthanded arm hits his peak shoulder height in back before releasing from a three-quarter slot. The life his 90-94 mph fastball presents out of his hand is impressive, oftentimes appearing harder than what the radar gun may read. His speedball did begin to touch 95-96 late this spring, perhaps giving a preview of what lies ahead as he continues to develop. Milbrandt’s 75-78 mph curveball has 11-to-5 break to it with good depth. He’s around the plate with it and it shows flashes of a plus offering. His slider tells a similar story. Milbrandt began using it more as the spring progressed and it possesses classic three-quarter break at 80-82 mph, and he will bury it against righthanded hitters. Topping off his mix is a changeup. Thrown with good arm action, Milbrandt is able to induce some downward movement with it to lefthanded hitters. Scouts agree the foundation is there for Milbrandt to mold into something special down the line. His ceiling is extremely high, and a pro organization may decide the profile is simply too good to let slip away to Vanderbilt in the fall.
