Drafted in the 15th round (433rd overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2004
The state's college ranks are deep in players who should get picked on the first day, aside from the premium drafts listed above. RHP Matt O'Brien could sneak into the first five rounds as a budget pick and is the state's best senior sign. He ran his fastball up to 94-95 mph consistently early in the year and has settled into the low 90s; he commands the pitch well, but at times it comes in flat. He's shown a loopy curveball and inconsistent split-finger fastball. He's pitched to contact more this season, and scouts would like to see him develop a pitch that makes hitters swing and miss more often.
