RHP Brian West entered became a potential first-round pick only in the weeks leading up to the draft. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound West was throwing in the 88-91-mph range when his velocity jumped up to 94-95. West committed to Texas A&M to play defensive end, a sign of his strength and athleticism. His career goal always has been to play baseball, so signability may not be an issue. West is a year older than most high school players, and his age and mature body have some scouts wondering how much better he can get.
