Gabe Gonzalez has been on scouts' radars for quite some time. He was a 13th round pick of the Rangers out of Arbor View High (Las Vegas) in 2014, but chose not to sign and instead enrolled at the College of Southern Nevada. In 2015, Gonzalez struggled to harness is excellent raw stuff, posting a 4.45 ERA. Still, he was drafted by the Phillies in the 36th round. Gonzalez is draft-eligible for the third consecutive year in 2016. He has a lightning-quick arm, giving him the ability to reach the mid-90s with his fastball, though he's better when he's controlling the pitch at 91-94. He also throws a slider and a changeup. Gonzalez performed better as a junior, pitching to a 3.77 ERA, but he walked nearly six batters per nine. He'll have to improve his control to maximize his arm strength.
