High School: Fort Worth Christian HS, North Richland Hills, Texas
Junior College: Seminole State (Okla.) JC
Ht.: 6'4" / Wt.: 215 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 2nd round (45th overall) by the Boston Red Sox in 2013 (signed for $915,000)
The highest unsigned prep pick in the 2012 draft, Stankiewicz went in the second round to the Mets out of a Texas high school. New York did not offer him the full $680,400 assigned value for his No. 75 slot, so he declined to sign. He backed out of an Arkansas commitment and headed to Seminole State so he'd be draft-eligible again this year. Stankiewicz has performed well enough to go in the same area of the draft, boosting his fastball consistently into the low 90s and topping out at 96 mph as the weather warmed up. He'll flash a plus slider that he can throw as hard as 85 mph, but he also uses a curveball and can get caught in between the two pitches. He has worked to improve his aptitude with his changeup. Despite adding 25 pounds of strength since last year, Stankiewicz does a good job of controlling his 6-foot-4, 215-pound frame and repeating his mechanics, allowing him to throw strikes with ease. Scouts don't love his drop-and-drive delivery, which allows hitters to see the ball better and costs him some plane on his pitches. He has recommitted to Arkansas again, though he's expected to sign.
