Drafted in the 7th round (220th overall) by the Texas Rangers in 2013 (signed for $162,300)
Gardewine threw a seven-inning no-hitter in his third college start in March, and he emerged as the ace and top prospect on a Kaskaskia team that advanced to the Junior College World Series for the first time ever. He's small (6-foot-1, 165 pounds) but has a quick arm and clean delivery that produce quality stuff. Those traits prompt comparisons to Matt Stites, a former juco pitcher at Jefferson (Mo.) is now a reliever in the Padres system. Gardewine may wind up in the bullpen as well because his size leads to durability concerns. He has the pitches and throws enough strikes to have a chance as a starter, however. His best offering is a cutter that can reach 90 mph. He sits at 90-91 mph and peaks at 94 with his fastball, and he mixes in a hard breaking ball and a changeup.
