Drafted in the 13th round (417th overall) by the Los Angeles Angels in 2012
A 40th-round pitch out of a Kansas high school in 2009, Morin was the top prospect in the MINK League the summer before he started college. He since has turned into a dominant college closer for the Tar Heels, and with one more save this season he would tie the North Carolina single-season record of 18, held by big leaguer Andrew Carignan. After allowing four home runs as a freshman, he has allowed just one in the last two seasons. As a pro, however, his potential could be limited if he doesn't develop a usable breaking ball. Morin has a good frame at 6-foot-4, 205 pounds and pitches with an average fastball, and he can reach back for more when the game is on the line. His changeup is an equalizer that sits in the mid-70s.
