Drafted in the 8th round (229th overall) by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2017 (signed for $7,500)
After two years at Everett (Wash.) CC, O'Brien headed to NAIA College of Idaho and pitched two seasons before becoming the highest draft pick in school history. The 6-foot-4, 180-pounder didn't allow a home run as a senior during a 3-4, 2.15 season, striking out 81 in 67 innings while working both out of the bullpen and the rotation. He's touched 95 mph and pitches at 89-93 at his best with some looseness in his arm portending more velocity to come. He's showed the ability to spin a solid-average breaking ball as well with both a slider and a curveball in his repertoire. He's a good athlete.
