Bedell skipped his senior season of high school to reclassify and enroll early at Missouri. After barely pitching as a freshman, Bedell was an excellent long reliever for the Tigers in 2019 and posted a 0.59 ERA in six starts with Harwich (Cape Cod) last summer. He stepped into the rotation this spring and was efficient (2-2, 3.70 with a 35-4 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 24.1 innings). Bedell is young for his class and has plus control and above-average command. His athleticism and extreme confidence are impressive. Other than his control and his makeup, nothing else is plus and he has a smaller frame. His average fastball would touch 94-95 mph out of the pen, but this spring he sat 89-91, touching 92. His changeup may end up as an above-average pitch. He throws an average 81-84 mph spike curve that sometimes morphs into a sliderish pitch when he gets on the side of it. He’s started to mess with a true slider as well and may eventually have four pitches. Bedell’s strong summer in the Cape Cod League and control makes him a pretty safe and solid pick in the third or fourth round, especially if a pro team can help him add a little more velocity.
