Jason Bilous
Name: Jason Peter Bilous
Born: Aug 11, 1997 in Wilmington, DE
High School: Caravel Academy, Bear, Del.
College: Coastal Carolina
Ht.: 6'2" / Wt.: 185 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 13th round (378th overall) by the Chicago White Sox in 2018 (signed for $185,000)
Drafted by the Dodgers in the 29th round out of high school despite not pitching his senior season due to Tommy John surgery, Bilous has long tantalized scouts with his potential. As a freshman at Coastal Carolina in 2016, he flashed electric stuff in Omaha, helping the Chanticleers win their first-ever national championship. Since then, he's been up-and-down as a weekend starter, going 3-2, 4.61 last season, and notching a 7-2, 3.00 record through 13 starts this spring. Bilous can look unhittable at times, featuring a 92-96 mph fastball with arm-side run, a hard, biting slider at 81-85 mph and an 84-87 mph changeup that he throws almost exclusively to lefties. The problem for the 6-foot-2, 190-pound righthander is that he struggles to repeat his release point and walks often pile up on him. In 169.1 college innings, Bilous has walked 135 batters--7.18 per nine innings. He's walked 58 (to 90 strikeouts) through 72 innings this spring--7.25 per nine. Because of his sheer lack of control, Bilous projects more as a reliever. He has the stuff to be dominant out of the bullpen, but he'll need to tighten up the location woes that have plagued him throughout his amateur career.
