    View Draft Report
    One of the biggest pitchers in the 2018 draft class, Bies is a 6-foot-8, 245-pound righhander who has a fastball up to 94 mph and an above-average breaking ball. Bies had Tommy John surgery in high school and redshirted during his first year with Gonzaga, but he has improved each season since 2016. Bies has turned into an above-average strike thrower after walking more than one batter per inning in a short 2016 season and then over five batters per nine innings in 2017. This spring, Bies has gone right after hitters with a solid-average fastball that plays up thanks to his size and the plane he's able to get on the ball. He has struck out 104 hitters and walked just 21 through his first 97 innings. Bies was on teams' radars last season, and although he didn't get drafted, he has done enough to become a potential top-10 round selection in June.
