Sam Wolff
Name: Samuel Taylor Wolff
Born: Apr 14, 1991 in Rapid City, SD
College: New Mexico
High School: Stevens HS, Rapid City, S.D.
Ht.: 6'1" / Wt.: 204 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 6th round (190th overall) by the Texas Rangers in 2013 (signed for $65,000)
Wolff is a South Dakota product who played four sports in high school and was a 42nd-round pick of the Angels in 2009. He didn't sign and spent two years at JC of Southern Nevada, where he was a 47th-round pick by the Red Sox in 2011. He headed to New Mexico instead, and the third time should be the charm as Wolff is one of the most intriguing seniors in the 2013 draft class. He had a 3.19 ERA in one of the toughest pitching environments in the country, helping New Mexico to a Mountain West Conference title and one of the best seasons in program history. He has a small frame at 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds, but his fastball sits in the mid-90s and touches 98 mph. He mixes in a solid slider and changeup, as well. His father Steven spent three years in the Padres system, and Sam could go as high as the fifth round to a team looking for a good senior value.
