Drafted in the 9th round (263rd overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2015 (signed for $5,000)
The Titans' closer as a senior, Peitzmeier helped lead Cal State Fullerton back to the College World Series for the first time since 2009 with a workhorse season. He logged 57 innings heading into Omaha and ranked third in the nation with 16 saves, needing two more in the CWS to take the national lead. He throws from a high arm slot and relies on deception to get swings and misses on his mid-to-upper 80s mph fastball, and he pounds the strike zone with his heater. He locates his fringy breaking ball and has good sink on his solid-average changeup, his best pitch.
