An Ohio native, Mayers is still growing into his 6-foot-3, 205-pound body and had an inconsistent junior season. He tired late in 2012, particularly in the Cape Cod League, but was gaining strength and moving up draft boards as 2013 wore on. He tossed seven scoreless innings against rival Mississippi State, and at his best he works with three solid-average pitches. His fastball sits in the 89-93 mph range, and he has pitched downhill more effectively this spring. His fastball lacks life, so he'll need to hone his command. He has improved his strike-throwing ability with his fastball and slider, a solid-average pitch and his best secondary offering. He lacks consistency with his changeup. Some scouts see him as nothing more than a fifth starter, while others cite his athleticism and think Mayers has more to offer.
