Drafted in the 20th round (634th overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2012 (signed for $122,000)
An eighth-round pick out of a Nebraska high school in 2010, Ehlers turned down an $800,000 offer from the Blue Jays. When the NCAA ruled that his adviser had negotiated directly with the team when he bumped into a Jays official at the Area Code Games, it suspended Ehlers for 60 percent of the 2011 season. Following a coaching change with the Cornhuskers and minor shoulder surgery last July, he transferred to Howard JC and became draft-eligible this spring. Hawks coach Britt Smith, who has sent several pitchers to Division I programs and pro ball, says Ehlers has the best combination of pitchability and stuff of anyone he has coached. He throws strikes with three pitches that all have a chance to become at least average big league offerings. He has a quick arm that delivers fastballs ranging from 88-92 mph and sitting at 90-91. His slider is a strikeout pitch at times but loopy at others, and his changeup is more of a show-me offering that he needs to use more often. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder tends to spin away from the plate in his delivery, but he makes it work. He has committed to Texas Tech for 2013 but is expected to sign.
