    View Draft Report
    A solid second-round projection, Durbin has edged ahead of fellow Arizona State signee Ryan Schroyer as Arizona's top high school prospect. Despite being only 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, Durbin is a warrior on the mound. He was an all-state wide receiver and carries a football mentality to the mound. He has plus stuff from a three-quarters release point--a fastball up to 94 mph and hard, biting slider. He went 10-2, 0.95 with 135 strikeouts and 13 walks in 85 innings this spring.
