Colorado's Top MLB Draft Prospects
1. Troy Watson, RHP, Northern Colorado (BA Rank: N/A)
4YR • DE-So. • 6-2 • 185 • R-R • Never drafted
Watson is one of the bigger wild cards in the Four Corners region this year, having missed time this year due to eligibility issues as well as a sore elbow. The draft-eligible sophomore from Gunter, Texas was up to 95 mph last season, but this year in limited time has been more around 92-93. He has a good, repeatable delivery coming from a high-three-quarters slot, and includes an average curveball, slider and changeup combo in his four-pitch repertoire. Watson has good feel for the game, but the elbow issue casts a cloud over him for now. The combination of his strong fastball and four-pitch mix could put him into the middle of the top ten rounds with a strong showing in the WAC conference tournament.
