Champlain was one of the top prep pitching prospects in the 2018 draft class, but his strong commitment to Southern California deterred teams from selecting him. The Angels took him in the 38th round as a courtesy selection. Champlain flashed promise but never put everything together at USC. He went 4-4, 5.06 in 15 starts with the Trojans this year and owns a career 5.31 ERA. Champlain looks the part at 6-foot-5, 220 pounds with a smooth delivery and a three-pitch mix. His fastball sits 92-93 mph and touches 96, his 12-to-6 curveball flashes above-average and his changeup shows average at its best. Champlain’s fastball is extremely straight and hittable, however, and he struggles to throw his secondary pitches for strikes, allowing batters to ignore them and sit on his fastball. Champlain’s control has slowly improved during his college career, so he has potential if he can start throwing his secondary pitches for strikes to get hitters off his fastball.
