Scouts already were dreaming on Lawson's athleticism and arm speed before his star turn last summer with USA Baseball's 18U national team. He was the team's go-to reliever--retiring the last five Japanese batters in the gold-medal victory--and thrived, getting two wins and a save with a 16-2 strikeout-walk ratio in 13 innings. Lawson's spring wasn't quite as sharp, however, and an April oblique strain ended his season early, costing him some momentum before the draft and possibly pushing him into the comp round or second-round range. Lawsome has tremendous upside though, with a fastball that reaches 94 mph regularly and has excellent late life, and he pitches off the fastball, generally repeating his release point thanks to a clean, quick arm. According to scouts, Lawson's developing changeup was ahead of his breaking ball this spring, as his curve was softer and loopier than it needs to be. He's signed to Arizona State.
