    View Draft Report
    Cosby is in his first year as a full-time pitcher and already touches 95-96 mph with a split-changeup that flashes average. He is physically imposing at 6-foot-5, 215 pounds, with some scouts believing he could one day touch 100 mph. Cosby’s control is inconsistent and he doesn’t really have command yet because he is so new to pitching. His size, arm strength and room for development make him an appealing high-upside pick for the draft’s third day.
