Drafted in the 8th round (227th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2015 (signed for $30,000)
Welmon has been a stalwart in Loyola Marymount's weekend rotation for three years thanks to his poise, competitiveness and ability to pound the strike zone with four pitches. He has just 54 strikeouts in 97 innings this spring, and the knock on him is that he lacks a finishing pitch. But he has good command of an 88-93 mph fastball that sits comfortably at 90-91, and he keeps hitters off balance by mixing in a solid-average slider, a solid-average changeup and a get-me-over curveball that flashes average at times. His ceiling is limited to the back of a rotation, but he is a proven performer with aptitude and moxie, and he could be drafted between the fourth and sixth rounds.
