2017 MLB Draft: College Pitcher Rankings





Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: May 31, 2017.



  1. Alex Faedo, P, Florida Projected Round Top 5 Pick

    2017 Season Recap The 6-5 220 lb Alex Faedo is 7-2 with a 2.80 ERA. His 113 strikeouts in 2017 are pretty mind boggling. He has great tape and can make any type of pitch. He also has 5 games where he had an ERA of above 5.00 along with 2 games with an ERA of above 10.00 which is probably the biggest reason MLB Scouts are concerned about his consistency. Faedo also pitched 7 shutout innings versus LSU and South Carolina though. I don't think the consistency is an issue at all and still believe that Faedo is the top College Pitcher in the 2017 MLB Draft. Faedo pitched very well versus Auburn in the SEC Tournament in his second game versus Auburn after having a season worst 12.46 ERA versus Auburn in his first start versus the Auburn Tigers which was a season worst in 2017.


    Alex Faedo SWOT Report

    Strengths: Faedo has a 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, 93-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a deadly slider, and a potent changeup. I'd like to see Faedo develop his curveball more, but he's a pretty complete prospect for the most part and last year he made Nick Senzel the second overall pick in the 2016 MLB Draft from Tennessee go 1/5 at the plate last season as Florida's #3 starter. Does a great job putting top spin on his pitches.


    Weaknesses: Alex Faedo needs to develop his curveball more. He also needs to pitch more consistently. MLB teams have issues with his mechanics. You may be getting a #2 or #3 starter instead of a #1 starter in the MLB.


    Opportunities: Alex Faedo entered the season as my #1 overall pick to Minnesota in my first MLB Mock Draft. I moved him down to the Athletics in my last mock. His consistency on tape is an issue though and Faedo could fall out of the top 10 despite having the best tape of any College Pitcher I saw.


    Threats: The big concern with Faedo is are you going to get the guy who threw 7 scoreless innings versus LSU or the guy who had a 12.46 ERA against Auburn prior to his huge game versus Auburn in the 2017 SEC Tournament. That unpredictability and inconsistency is why a lot of MLB Mocks have Faedo now slipping out of the top 10.



    Before 2017

    The 6-5 220 lb pitcher went 6-1 with a 3.23 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 2015. Faedo led Florida with a 13-3 record while posting a 3.18 ERA and 133 strikeouts in 104 and 2/3 innings in 2016. Faedo had a 4.61 ERA against other SEC teams and some teams have concerns about his mechanics.




  2. Kyle Wright, P, Vanderbilt Projected Round Top 5 Pick

    2017 Season Recap The 6-4 220 lb Kyle Wright got off to a rough start with a 2-4 record and a 3.98 ERA. Wright is 4-5 this season with a 2.91 ERA. Wright is still in the running to be the top pick despite having a losing record.


    Kyle Wright SWOT Report

    Strengths: Beat out 2016 first round prospect Jordan Sheffield for the #1 pitcher job. Wright has a 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, 93-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a deadly slider, and a potent changeup, but he does not have the command and control of those pitches that Faedo has despite having the exact same variety and velocity of pitches that Faedo has. Wright has two years of experience as the #1 starting pitcher for Vanderbilt which is something Faedo doesn't have.


    Weaknesses: Kyle Wright got off to a rough start in 2017. Has a losing record in 2017. Other than that, I see a pretty complete prospect.


    Opportunities: Kyle Wright may go as early as first overall. The Minnesota Twins are looking at Hunter Greene, Brendan McKay, and Kyle Wright with the top pick.


    Threats: I don't see a threat with Kyle Wright unless you count his losing record this season, but I'm not concerned about that. He's the only College Pitcher with two years of experience as the #1 starter so that consistency is a huge asset.



    Before 2017

    Wright went 8-4 with a 3.09 ERA in 2016 and surpassed Jordan Sheffield as the #1 pitcher for Vanderbilt. Wright should go top 5 in 2017 if he puts together another strong season.




  3. Brendan McKay, P, Louisville Projected Round Top 5 Pick

    2017 Season Recap The 6-2 220 lb Brendan McKay impresses some on tape. He weighed 212 lbs heading into the season and put on 8 lbs of muscle. McKay is 9-3 with a 2.37 ERA. Also batted .360 with 16 home runs and 51 RBI's. His curveball and change up are effective, but McKay hasn't developed his slider yet and only has 3 plus pitches with his curveball as the only potential plus pitch down the road outside of his deadly fastballs which McKay is known for.


    Brendan McKay SWOT Report

    Strengths: Brendan McKay is an everyday player. McKay only has a 93-mile per hour 4-seam fastball and a 91-mile per hour 2-seam fastball. When he's not pitching every fifth day, he's playing first base.


    Weaknesses: Brendan McKay relies too much on his fastball. The fastball is McKay's only plus pitch and he needs to improve his speed if he's going to be a batter. McKay needs to add more velocity to his fastball. Needs to fix mechanics with his back hip when pitching.


    Opportunities: Brendan McKay is a top 10 prospect. He's getting top 5 hype though and he's also the favorite to be picked first overall.


    Threats: The back hip drives the back shoulder so if a pitcher has trouble throwing with their back hip that's a concern. That's the issue with McKay so there may be injuries with McKay down the road.



    Before 2017

    McKay dominated at Blackhawk High School with an ERA of under 1.00 and over 100 strikeouts. Was selected in the 34th round of the 2014 MLB Draft by the San Diego Padres, but chose to play College at Louisville instead of making the jump to the MLB. McKay won freshman of the year at 9-3 with a 1.77 ERA in 2015. Brendan McKay went 12-4 with a 2.80 ERA in 2016. Brendan McKay plays both pitcher and first base.




  4. J.B. Bukauskas, P, North Carolina Projected Round Top 10 Pick

    2017 Season Recap The 6-0 201 lb J.B. Bukauskas is 8-0 with a 1.87 ERA in 2017. Bukauskas is putting together a fantastic season that may vault him into the top 10.


    J.B. Bukauskas SWOT Report

    Strengths: Bukauskas has a 95-mile per hour fastball and an 85-mile per hour slider. His curveball is at 75-miles per hour and his changeup is at 71-miles per hour.


    Weaknesses: ukauskas is slighty undersized at 6-0 201 lbs and some think his 6-foot frame hurts him to the point where he may convert to the bullpen.


    Opportunities: I'm not sure where J.B. Bukauskas ends up. He's a top 10 talent though.


    Threats: There are no threats with J.B. Bukauskas. The big concern is whether he becomes a starter or reliever.



    Before 2017

    J.B. Bukauskas went 5-3 with a 4.09 ERA in 2015. Bukauskas improved on that with a 7-2 record and 3.10 ERA in 2016.




  5. Tanner Houck, P, Missouri Projected Round 1st Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-5 202 lb Tanner Houck is 4-7 with a 3.33 ERA and 95 strikeouts in 2017. He's had some good games, but is also very inconsistent on tape which is a concern itself.


    Tanner Houck SWOT Report

    Strengths: Houck has a 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball and a 92-mile per hour 2-seam fastball. Houck also throws a curveball, slider, and change up.


    Weaknesses: Houck has to work on his command and ability to win consistently despite 3 complete games and 2 complete game shutouts in 2016. He needs to work on his 3/4 delivery though and get those pitches up to par with his fastballs.


    Opportunities: I'm not sure where Houck ends up. He could go anywhere in the top 15 though.


    Threats: Tanner Houck has no threats. He's pretty durable too. Teams just want to see Houck win more.



    Before 2017

    Tanner Houck went 5-6 with a 2.99 ERA in 2016. Hock needs to post a winning record and lower his ERA if he wants to go in the top 10 in 2017.




  6. Alex Lange, P, LSU Projected Round 1st Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-3 201 lb Alex Lange is 8-5 with a 2.59 ERA in 2017. Lange has pitched extremely well this season and looks like a top 20 prospect.


    Alex Lange SWOT Report

    Strengths: He's still a first round pick due to his 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball on tape. Lange needs to develop the rest of his pitches, but LSU has a good track record with their pitching. Has excellent command and accuracy with his pitches.


    Weaknesses: Needs to develop other pitches outside of his fastball. He has the same issue Brendan McKay has in that regard. Lange throws with more velocity and has better hip


    Opportunities: Alex Lange has too much talent to fall out of the first round. He's a first round prospect who should get picked in the top 20.


    Threats: I don't see any threats with Alex Lange. He seems like a pretty sound prospect.



    Before 2017

    Alex Lange went 12-0 with a 1.97 ERA as a true freshman in 2015 with 114 strikeouts. Lange went 8-4 with a 3.79 ERA in 2016 doing much worse. Lange needs to rebound in 2017.




  7. Griffin Canning, P, UCLA Projected Round 1st Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-2 180 lb Griffin Canning has dominated with UCLA this season. Canning is 7-3 with a 2.33 ERA in 2017. Canning has pitched 134 strikeouts in 111.1 innings this season. Canning pitched 4 complete games for UCLA in 2017.


    Griffin Canning SWOT Report

    Strengths: Griffin Canning has a 92-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 91-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a changeup, curveball, slider, and sinker. All of these pitches are at an MLB level. Canning has excellent command and accuracy on his pitches.


    Weaknesses: Griffin Canning needs to bulk up and add more muscle. I'd also like to see more velocity on his pitches. Other than that, I'm not too concerned about Canning though.


    Opportunities: I have a top 25 grade on Griffin Canning. Canning should be picked in the top 25 of the 2017 MLB Draft.


    Threats: Griffin Canning suffered a season ending injury in 2015, but he stayed healthy this year. Canning looks like a first round pick.



    Before 2017

    Griffin Canning began his freshman season 7-1 with a 2.97 ERA before suffering a season ending injury. Canning struggled in 2016 as well as a result. Canning needs a huge 2017 season to garner first round consideration.




  8. David Peterson, P, Oregon Projected Round 1st Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-6 240 lb David Peterson is 11-4 with a 2.51 ERA in 2017. Threw 140 strikeouts in 100.1 innings. Peterson had 20 strikeouts versus Arizona State which was a school record plus he had 1 complete game shutout in 2017.


    David Peterson SWOT Report

    Strengths: David Peterson has a 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 93-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a 91-mile per hour sinker, a changeup, and a curveball. Works from a low 3/4 arm slot. David Peterson is a strikeout machine.


    Weaknesses: David Peterson needs to develop his slider. Still needs to perfect his command on pitches despite taking huge strides in 2017 as Oregon's #1 starter.


    Opportunities: I'm not sure where David Peterson goes. I have a first round grade on him.


    Threats: David Peterson got injured during his senior year in High School. His throwing motion may make him injury prone in the MLB.



    Before 2017

    David Peterson struggled during his first two years at Oregon. He really needs to put everything together.




  9. Wil Crowe, P, South Carolina Projected Round 1st Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-2 250 lb Wil Crowe went 6-5 with a 3.41 ERA in 2017. Crowe had issues with his mechanics, but he fixed those issues.


    Wil Crowe SWOT Report

    Strengths: Wil Crowe has a 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 93-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a sinker, a cutter fastball, a slider, a changeup, and a curveball. Having this much variety on pitches along with better mechanics is why Crowe has a shot to crack the first round of the 2017 MLB Draft.


    Weaknesses: Wil Crowe fixed issues with his mechanics in 2017. Improving his command and pitching accuracy is one adjustment I'd like to see Crowe make. Didn't throw with as much velocity in 2017.


    Opportunities: I had a second round grade on Wil Crowe. He finished the year on a high note and now I got a first round grade on Crowe.


    Threats: Wil Crowe had Tommy John Surgery which limited him as a sophomore in 2015. The Tommy John Surgery kept him out in all of 2016 as well.



    Before 2017

    Will Crowe went 8-3 with a 2.75 ERA as a freshman in 2014. Crowe regressed as a sophomore before Tommy John Surgery limited him as a sophomore in 2015 and kept him out for all of 2016.




  10. Jake Thompson, P, Oregon State Projected Round 1st Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-2 201 lb Jake Thompson is 12-0 with a mind boggling 1.01 ERA in 2017. Thompson went from a relative unknown to a first round prospect.


    Jake Thompson SWOT Report

    Strengths: Jake Thompson has a 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball and a 92-mile per hour 2-seam fastball. Thompson also has a slider, changeup, and curveball. Shows flashes of top 10 talent.


    Weaknesses: Just needs to work on developing his core strength. Developing his core strength will increase velocity on his pitches.


    Opportunities: Jake Thompson is a first round prospect. He's a great starter, but would be a bigger asset in the bullpen. It wouldn't surprise me if a team reached for him in the top 10 and it also wouldn't shock me if he fell to the second round in such a deep pitching class.


    Threats: I don't see any threats with Jake Thompson. It's not a concern though since he can play both roles if needed. He's one of the more intriguing College Pitchers in the 2017 MLB Draft.



    Before 2017

    Jake Thomson struggled in each of his first three seasons with Oregon State. He needs a huge year to convince teams he should go before the 34th round which is where Thompson was drafted coming out of High School.




  11. Morgan Cooper, P, Texas Projected Round 1st Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-4 215 lb Morgan Cooper put together his best season. Morgan Cooper is 6-2 with a 2.27 ERA in 2017 along with a career high 89 strikeouts.


    Morgan Cooper SWOT Report

    Strengths: Morgan Cooper has a 96-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 94-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a 93-mile her hour cutter fastball, a 84-mile per hour changeup, and a 75-mile per hour curveball. Has more command, control, and accuracy on his fastballs and changeup than any of his other pitches.


    Weaknesses: Needs to improve command on his curveball. Also needs to develop one more pitch in the minors whether it be a slider, sinker, or knuckle curveball.


    Opportunities: I have a first round grade on Michael Cooper. I really like Cooper's tape, but I've seen him mocked as low as the fourth round.


    Threats: Michael Cooper missed 2015 with an injury. Durability is probably the biggest threat working against Cooper even though he's stayed healthy in 2017.



    Before 2017

    Michael Cooper dominated in 2014 before missing 2015 with a season ending injury. He struggled in 2016 and needs a rebound season in 2017 in order to get picked in the first round.




  12. Drew Rasmussen, P, Oregon State Projected Round 2nd Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-1 225 lb Drew Rasmussen missed most of 2017 with an injury. Drew Rasmussen has a mind boggling 0.51 ERA and is 3-0 in 2017 since recovering from his injury.


    Drew Rasmussen SWOT Report

    Strengths: Rasmussen has a fastball that can go up to 97-miles per hour. Rasmussen also has a very good command when healthy.


    Weaknesses: Drew Rasmussen needs to develop secondary pitches to compliment his fastball. Once Rasmussen does this his game will be pretty complete.


    Opportunities: I have a second round grade on Rasmussen. I initially had a first round grade on Rasmussen.


    Threats: Rasmussen had Tommy John's Surgery in 2016 which caused him to miss the rest of 2016 and most of 2017. The good news is Rasmussen is fully healthy now, but some MLB teams may still be concerned about this.



    Before 2017

    Rasmussen pitched 106 innings with a 2.80 ERA in 2015. Rasmussen started 4-1 with a 3.40 ERA in 6 starts before a season ending injury.




  13. Tristan Beck, P, Stanford Projected Round 2nd Round

    2017 Season Recap Tristan Beck did not play in 2017 due to injuries. Beck is still eligible for the 2017 MLB Draft as a sophomore despite this.


    Tristan Beck SWOT Report

    Strengths: Tristan Beck has a 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 92-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a 12-6 curveball, and a changeup. Beck's variety of pitches make him lethal.


    Weaknesses: Tristan Beck is undersized. He's only 6-4 160 lbs. He needs to add some muscle and put on some weight.


    Opportunities: I have a second round grade on Tristan Beck. He was a first round prospect until his injury.


    Threats: Tristan Beck missed all of 2017 with a shoulder stinger. Durability is an issue with Tristan Beck.



    Before 2017

    Tristan Beck was the third Stanford freshman in school history to be the #1 starter on opening day and the first freshman since Cal Quantril. Beck has the same durability issues that Cal Quantril has.




  14. Colton Hock, P, Stanford Projected Round 2nd Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-5 220 lb Colton Hock is the best relief pitcher in the 2017 MLB Draft. Hock has a 1.99 ERA and 15 saves in 2017.


    Colton Hock SWOT Report

    Strengths: Colton Hock has a 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 92-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, and a curveball.


    Weaknesses: Hock only has two plus pitches with his fastball and curveball. Hock has no experience as a starter with all of his best games coming out of the bullpen as Stanford's closer.


    Opportunities: I have a second round grade on Colton Hock. He was a first round prospect at the beginning of the season.


    Threats: Colton Hock is a reliever only. That can limit his upside as a pitcher.



    Before 2017

    Colton Hock had 3 saves in 2015 and 6 saves in 2016. Colton Hock needs to do more in 2017.




  15. Luke Heimlich, P, Oregon State Projected Round 2nd Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-1 197 lb Luke Heimlich has stepped up in 2017. Luke Heimlich has a mind boggling 0.81 ERA and is 10-1 in 2017. Heimlich has pitched 111.1 innings and has 120 strikeouts in 2017.


    Luke Heimlich SWOT Report

    Strengths: Luke Heimlich has a 93-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 91-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a 79-mile per hour changeup, and a 75-mile per hour curveball. Displays excellent command and pinpoint pitching accuracy.


    Weaknesses: Heimlich lacks velocity. He needs to bulk up and add some muscle as well.


    Opportunities: I have a second round grade on Luke Heimlich. I didn't think much of Heimlich until this season.


    Threats: There are no threats with Luke Heimlich. He doesn't have the upside of a Drew Rasmussen type of pitcher though.



    Before 2017

    Luke Heimlich didn't stand out as a freshman in 2015. He did better though going 7-4 in 11 starts with a 3.53 ERA as a sophomore in 2016.




  16. Alex Troop, P, Michigan State Projected Round 2nd Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-5 210 lb Alex Troop has stepped up in 2017. Alex Troop has a 2.47 ERA and is 8-3 in 2017.


    Alex Troop SWOT Report

    Strengths: Alex Troop has a 92-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 86-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a 80-mile per hour changeup, and a 77-mile per hour curveball. Displays excellent command and pinpoint pitching accuracy.


    Weaknesses: Troop does not seem to have any weaknesses as a pitcher. I'd like to see him get more strikeouts, but you really cannot complain about what he does at this point.


    Opportunities: I have a second round grade on Alex Troop. Troop should get drafted in the first two rounds.


    Threats: Alex Troop may convert to first base. That will limit his ability as a pitcher and no team will get the best out of him.



    Before 2017

    Alex Troop went 4-2 with a 5.27 ERA in 2015. Alex Troop began the year 3-0 with a 1.64 ERA in 2016 before suffering a season ending injury. Troop needs another strong year and he needs to stay healthy in 2017 if he wants to creep up draft boards.




  17. Alex Cunningham, P, Coastal Carolina Projected Round 2nd Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-0 210 lb Alex Cunningham has stepped up in 2017. Alex Cunningham has a 2.63 ERA and is 7-2 with 117 strikeouts in 2017.


    Alex Cunningham SWOT Report

    Strengths: Alex Cunningham has a 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 88-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a 79-mile per hour changeup, and a 77-mile per hour curveball. Displays excellent command and pinpoint pitching accuracy.


    Weaknesses: Cunningham does not seem to have any weaknesses as a pitcher. I think Cunningham is a dark horse that a lot of people are sleeping on.


    Opportunities: I have a second round grade on Alex Cunningham. Cunningham should get drafted should get drafted in the first two rounds.


    Threats: There are no threats with Alex Cunningham. He's one of the safer picks in the 2017 MLB Draft.



    Before 2017

    Alex Cunningham went 10-4 with a 3.62 ERA as a junior. Cunningham was the ace behind Coastal Carolina's 2016 College World Series run.




  18. Seth Romero, P, Houston Projected Round 2nd Round

    2017 Season Recap Seth Romero began the year 4-5 with a 3.51 ERA. He did not finish his season with Houston though and got dismissed from the team.


    Seth Romero SWOT Report

    Strengths: Seth Romero has a 100-mile per hour 4-seam fastball and a 98-mile per hour 2-seam fastball. His velocity is off the charts.


    Weaknesses: Needs to fill out his frame and improve secondary pitches. Also needs to improve mechanics.


    Opportunities: I have a second round grade on Seth Romero. Romero should get drafted should get drafted in the first two rounds.


    Threats: Off the field concerns are huge with Seth Romero. He got into a fight with a teammate after getting caught smoking weed during practice. Those two things led to Houston dismissing him from their baseball team.



    Before 2017

    Seth Romero went 7-4 with a 1.94 ERA as a freshman in 2015. Romero went 6-4 with a 2.29 ERA in 2016.




  19. Clarke Schmidt, P, South Carolina Projected Round 2nd Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-1 205 lb Clarke Schmidt began the year 4-2 with a 1.34 ERA. A season ending injury kept Schmidt from pitching after the beginning of 2017.


    Clarke Schmidt SWOT Report

    Strengths: Clarke Schmidt has a 94-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 92-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a 90-mile per hour sinker, a slider, a changeup, and a curveball. Having this much variety on pitches along with better mechanics is why Schmidt has a shot to crack the first two rounds of the 2017 MLB Draft.


    Weaknesses: Clarke Schmidt needs to recover from his injury. Durability concerns are the issue with Schmidt.


    Opportunities: I had a first round grade on Clarke Schmidt. His injury knocks him down to the second round.


    Threats: Clarke Schmidt had Tommy John Surgery in 2017. That ended his season in April.



    Before 2017

    Clarke Schmidt went 2-2 with a 4.81 ERA as a freshman in 2015. Schmidt went 9-5 with a 3.40 ERA 2016.




  20. Zac Lowther, P, Xavier Projected Round 2nd Round

    2017 Season Recap The 6-3 235 lb Zac Lowther is 5-4 with a 2.81 ERA in 2017. Lowther has potential to be a second round pick if he puts everything together.


    Zac Lowther SWOT Report

    Strengths: Zac Lowther has excellent command and pitching accuracy. He also has a 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball.


    Weaknesses: Zac Lowther needs to develop other pitches outside of his fastball. He also needs to improve his velocity on those secondary pitches.


    Opportunities: I have a second round grade on Zac Lowther. You can argue he's a second to third rounder though.


    Threats: There are no threats with Zac Lowther. At the same time, he has less upside than most pitchers in the 2017 MLB Draft.



    Before 2017

    Zac Lowther was used a lot as a reliever during his freshman season with only 5 games as a starter. Lowther pitched 102 innings with 84 strikeouts in 2016. Lowther has a chance to go anywhere between the second and fifth round if he builds off of that in 2017.
