Drafted in the 13th round (383rd overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2015 (signed for $100,000)
Lean and projectable in high school, Twomey had a dominant spring as a prep senior and pushed himself up to the third round of the 2012 draft. However, he didn't agree to terms with the Athletics and headed to Southern California, where he has helped the Trojans earn a regional berth in 2015, ending a decade-long absence from the NCAA tournament. Twomey, listed at 6-foot-3, 175-pounds, remains thin, and has never added significant strength to his frame, nor has he gained velocity. He pitched in the upper 80s most of the year, though he still bumps a 91 mph regularly, and can pitch off his fastball when he commands it. He has a clean arm and gets life on his fastball down and with some tailing life as well. His changeup is his best secondary pitch but he continues to pitch with a slow, get-me-over curveball that remains a below-average pitch. Twomey has had more success this year than previously for the Trojans but was trending in the wrong direction as the season wore on. He's unlikely to get drafted as high as he did out of high school.
