The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Cota won't be around on draft day. He was the top draft-and-follow in this year's group and signed with the Royals, who selected him in the 10th round a year ago, for $1.05 million. He would have re-entered the draft as a late first-rounder or sandwich pick. Cota was a relative unknown at the start of his senior year at Tucson's Sunnyside High but made huge strides. He has electric stuff with a fastball that peaks at 97 mph, and he can spot his breaking ball and changeup. His arm works free and easy, and he's athletic. He pounces off the mound to field his position and holds runners well. He's still learning the craft of pitching. Even though he had superior stuff and went 12-0, 0.86 with 117 strikeouts in 93 innings this spring at South Mountain CC and was the Arizona Community College Athletic Association player of the year, he did not always dominate junior college hitters using wood bats.
