Oliver Drake has tantalized teams this year. A sophomore-eligible righthander at Navy, Drake has been impressive in his first two seasons. Pitching between 89-91 mph, Drake has a fluid motion and natural life on his fastball. His low-80s slider is a plus pitch, and his changeup and curveball could be in the future. Still projectable, Drake has a lot to like, but teams will have to wait on him--and who knows how long.
