English's stock has risen steadily this spring and he projects as a third- to fifth-round pick. He has attracted interest as both a hitter and pitcher, but most see more upside on the mound. He doesn't have a reliable second pitch or a good feel for pitching yet, but scouts can see a resemblance to Indians lefthander C.C. Sabathia. English has a similar (though smaller) frame at 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds and a fastball clocked at 92-93 mph. Like Sabathia, a first-round pick in 1998, English has to tone up his body. He competes well but pitches with a lot of effort.
