Madison was a compelling combination of athleticism and potential when he was coming out of Bauxite (Ark.) HS in 2015. Three years later, that scouting report still applies, but now he has some dominant performances in NAIA ball on his resume. As of early May, Madison was leading all NAIA pitchers with 16 strikeouts per nine innings and he has reached double-digit strikeouts in nine of his first 14 starts in 2018. Madison's above-average, 91-93 mph fastball can touch 95-96 mph at its best. It sets up an above-average slider that has left hitters helpless and he mixes in the sporadic curveball. Madison will need to continue to develop his secondary offerings, but as a twitchy athlete who could continue to develop, Madison is a high-upside righthander who could be drafted late on day two or early on day three of this year's draft.
