College: Washington
Ht.: 6'2" / Wt.: 201 lbs

Drafted in the 5th round (166th overall) by the Washington Nationals in 2013 (signed for $272,800)
Voth led Kentwood High of Covington to a Washington 4-A title in 2010 but wasn't drafted. The cousin of Oregon State righthander Sam Gaviglio, a fifth-round pick by the Cardinals in 2011, Voth has a solid, 6-foot-1, 209-pound build and scouts like his competitiveness. He has been a starter all three years with the Huskies and has improved each season, ranking second in the Pacific-12 Conference in strikeouts this season behind Mark Appel. Scouts see Voth as a future reliever because he relies so heavily on his fastball. It sits in the 89-94 mph range and he has the ability to manipulate it and spot it to all quadrants of the strike zone. His command helps the pitch play up, and it could gain velocity out of the bullpen. Voth mixes in an average cutter and a rarely used changeup. A team that values performance could pick him as early as the fifth or sixth round.
