Drafted in the 11th round (351st overall) by the Chicago White Sox in 2012 (signed for $100,000)
Jaffe was a cornerstone of California's No. 11 recruiting class in the fall of 2010, but he transferred to UCLA after Cal announced plans to disband its program. He has pitched sparingly at UCLA due to control issues. At 6-foot-4, 235 pounds, Jaffe looks like a power-armed closer in the Jonathan Broxton mold, and he has arm strength to match, with a 90-94 mph fastball and a power curve. His delivery has minimal effort, but he simply struggles to throw strikes. If he can figure out the mental side of the game, he could provide good value after the 10th round. He is considered signable as a draft-eligible sophomore.
