West Virginia's Top 2018 MLB Draft Prospects


1. Michael Grove, RHP, West Virginia (BA Rank: 271)
4YR • Jr. • 6-3 • 200 • R-R • Never Drafted

Grove was shaping up to be a priority follow this year as he showed a mid-rotation caliber arm for West Virginia last season before he blew out his elbow in his ninth start of the season. He hasn’t pitched in a game this year as he recovers, but pre-injury he was blowing away hitters with a 93-96 mph fastball and a plus breaking ball with above-average control. Grove’s injury status makes him a true wild card for the draft, but a team willing to take a chance could end up landing a second/third round talent in a later round.

2. Chase Illig, C, West Virginia (BA Rank: N/A )
4YR • R-So. • 6-0 • 210 • B-R • Never Drafted

3. Kyle Gray, 2B, West Virginia (BA Rank: N/A)
