Drafted in the 5th round (146th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2017 (signed for $343,100)
A draft-eligible sophomore, Kennedy has recovered nicely from a very rough introduction to Division I baseball last year as he went 1-1, 8.44 with 19 hits and 12 walks allowed in 16 innings. This year, he's bounced between the bullpen and the rotation for the Longhorns, pitching effectively in both roles (8-2, 3.02 with 59 strikeouts in 53.2 innings). Kennedy sets hitters up with a 90-94 mph fastball and finishes them off with a hard slider. He also throws a below-average changeup, especially when he's starting. Kennedy could step into an even larger role for Texas as a junior if he doesn't sign this year.
