Drafted in the 11th round (326th overall) by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2014
An unsigned fifth-round pick of out of high school in 2011, Woodruff had an uneven three years at Mississippi State. He had a stress fracture in his elbow last year and was expected to become a rotation stalwart this season, but moved to the bullpen after six starts. In the rotation he pitched at 88-92 mph, touching 94. He was at 91-95 mph out of the bullpen, touching 97 at his best. Woodruff primarily uses two-seamers and gets downhill plane and plus fastball life with hard sink and armside run. His best secondary offering is a changeup that shows plus potential. His slider shows average potential but has been inconsistent. He will likely be a reliever in pro ball, but he has the fastball, plus secondary pitch and body (6-foot-2, 231 pounds) for the rotation. He has walked 5.0 per nine for his career and 5.7 this season, with a 1.2 strikeout-walk ratio.
