Drafted in the 12th round (361st overall) by the Baltimore Orioles in 2014
Nootbaar is a classic arm-strength righty with major control issues. After logging 35 innings as a freshman and 48 as a sophomore, he threw just 16 innings as a junior this spring, issuing 18 walks while striking out 14. His delivery is a mess--he throws across his body, has a low elbow and can't repeat his release point. But he has a quick arm, an athletic 6-foot-1 frame and the makings of two plus pitches--but they are very erratic. His fastball ranges from 91-94 mph, and his low-80s power breaking ball has good depth at times. He's a reliever all the way, and a project, but an enterprising club could take him in the top 10 rounds.
