A 38th-round selection of the Cubs in 2013, Brown opted to take his talents to Kentucky, where he's established himself as a starting pitching prospect. Brown rose to prominence during his sophomore year, when he anchored the Wildcats' rotation, posting a 3.48 ERA over nearly 100 innings. This year, Brown's stuff has held up, but he's struggled to throw quality strikes, missing his spots and being squared up often, leading to a 2-10, 5.70 season in mid-May. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder has a high-tempo delivery and sometimes struggles with his timing, leading to his arm being either late or early. When he's right, however, the stuff coming out of his hand is electric. With a fastball that routinely sits at 91-94 and can sit even higher on the right night and a power curveball, Brown has a chance for two plus pitches. The team that takes him will likely aim to develop him as a starter because his excellent athleticism could enable him to make the necessary adjustments to succeed in that role. If he doesn't find consistency in his delivery, he could be a two-pitch reliever.
