Drafted in the 1st round (4th overall) by the Baltimore Orioles in 2012 (signed for $4,320,000)
Gausman ranked No. 50 on the Top 200 Prospects list in 2010 coming out of Grandview High in Centennial, Colo., but an uneven senior season, he slipped to the sixth round. The Dodgers failed to sign him, and Gausman headed to LSU, where he's made a leap forward after pitching for USA Baseball's College National Team last summer. New pitching coach Alan Dunn also has made some subtle tweaks to Gausman's repertoire this spring, shelving his slider earlier in the season in favor of a curveball before bringing back his slider later in the season. At his best, Gausman has two premium pitches with a fastball that sits 94-96 mph, touching 98, and he mixes in a low-90s two-seamer to get something with some armside run. Gausman's 85-86 mph changeup is a second plus pitch, but scouts do have significant questions about the development of his breaking pitches. He throws an upper-70s curve as an early-count offering and throws his inconsistent mid-80s slider as a chase pitch. An eligible sophomore, Gausman has made strides in his two college seasons and should go out in the first five to seven picks.
