    View Draft Report
    A 22nd-round pick by the Athletics last season, righthander Preston Guilmet returned to Arizona for his senior year and pitched better than his 6-5 record would indicate. He struck out 93 and walked 34 over 91 innings while maintaining a 3.74 ERA. His stuff is essentially the same as last year, with a fastball in the 87-90 mph range. He mixes his pitches well, spots his fastball and changeup and knows how to pitch. For breaking balls, he throws a slider and a split-finger fastball, and while they can be difficult to tell apart they are both out pitches at times.
