Drafted in the supplemental 1st round (63rd overall) by the San Diego Padres in 2007 (signed for $515,000)
Thrust into Ohio State's No. 1 starter role after Dan DeLucia succumbed to elbow surgery, Luebke has responded by leading the Big 10 Conference with a 1.95 regular-season ERA--nearly a run better than his closest competitor, Penn State's Craig Clark at 2.79. Scouts have been interested in the athletic lefthander since he was in high school, but Luebke was intent on becoming a Buckeye. Draft-eligible as a sophomore a year ago, Luebke turned down the Rangers as a 22nd-rounder and instead spent the summer turning in a solid performance in the Cape Cod League. He doesn't have overwhelming stuff, but his 88-91 mph fastball and slider are good enough, especially because the throws strikes and competes. He has done a better job locating his pitches as a junior, and there's still projection in his 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame. Luebke could go as high as the third round to a club seeking a polished college lefty.
