Drafted in the 17th round (502nd overall) by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2014
The most dangerous hitter on an Iowa Western team that made its sixth straight trip to the Junior College World Series, Tomscha batted .446 with nearly as many homers (15) as strikeouts (18) through the regional playoffs. He's a strong 6-foot-3 and 223 pounds, though some scouts question whether the righthanded hitter will provide enough offense for third base when he faces better competition. He's a fringy runner but not a bad athlete, and he has improved defensively at the hot corner this spring. He has been clocked at 90-92 mph off the mound and 95 across the infield, and a number of clubs would like to try him on the mound, but he has had no interest in converting to the mound. Catching is another intriguing possibility. Drafted in the 50th round by the Phillies out of high school and in the 36th round last year by the Marlins, Tomscha will get selected again this June. If he doesn't turn pro, he'll transfer to Auburn.
