Mike Fagan
Name: Michael Phillip Fagan
Born: May 12, 1992 in San Diego, CA
High School: Princeton
College: Princeton
Ht.: 5'11" / Wt.: 160 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: L
Drafted in the 9th round (282nd overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2014 (signed for $20,000)
Fagan was drafted out of high school but went undrafted last season as a junior as he struggled to throw strikes. He walked 13 per nine against 8.7 strikeouts per nine in three years and averaged a wild pitch nearly every other inning. This season, he cut his walk to 2.8 per nine and led the Ivy League in strikeouts. In his last start of the season, with considerable scouting heat in to see Cornell righthander Brent Jones, Fagan threw nine innings of one-run ball with two walks and 11 strikeouts. His quick arm generates a fastball that sits 88-91 mph and touches 92 with late riding life through the zone. He is mostly a two-pitch pitcher, and his breaking ball offers at least average potential, flashing better. He has used a changeup sparingly. The 6-foot, 175-pounder has an athletic body with strength, and while some scouts are skeptical he can maintain his improved control, he will be a coveted senior sign.
