Name: Ryan Christian Yarbrough
Born: Dec 31, 1991 in Lakeland, Fla. USA
College: Old Dominion

Bats: R / Throws: L
Drafted in the 4th round (111th overall) by the Seattle Mariners in 2014 (signed for $40,000)
Yarbrough spent two years at a Florida junior college before transferring to Old Dominion last year. The Brewers selected him in the 20th round, and he is likely go higher than that this season as a senior sign who has improved his stuff and performance. The 6-foot-6, 205-pound Yarbrough is a big-bodied, strike-throwing lefthander who pitched at 86-89 mph last year but has been 87-91, touching 92 this spring with a fairly easy delivery. His fastball plays up with sink and armside run from a low three-quarters arm slot that produces groundballs. His sweepy breaking ball is below-average to fringe-average, and his feel for it comes and goes. A changeup with average potential is his best secondary pitch. He projects to have at least average control.
