    The state's best amateur pitching prospects are both draft-eligible sophomore righty relievers at Minnesota, Cullen Sexton and Scott Matyas. Scouts give Sexton the edge because he throws harder, sitting at 90-93 mph and touching 95, and has more projection remaining in his 6-foot-3, 195-pound frame. His arm action isn't pretty, costing him command, and he lacks a reliable secondary pitch, which is why he had a 5.16 ERA as a set-up man. His velocity could sneak him into the first 10 rounds, however.
