Drafted in the 13th round (394th overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2011
Lefty John Pedrotty mostly played first base for Portsmouth (R.I.) HS, one of the Northeast's top prep teams in 2008, alongside Ryan Westmoreland, the Red Sox's fifth-round pick that year. When Westmoreland got hurt toward the end of the season, Pedrotty was forced to pitch more often, and he has improved significantly since then. Now the 6-foot-3, 210-pounder has an 88-92 mph fastball with an easy delivery and smooth arm action. Pedrotty also has an average changeup and below-average curveball that he throws for strikes. Scouts like Pedrotty's upside and think he'll have a chance to start if he can improve his breaking ball. Pedrotty should get taken between rounds 15-20.
