Sounds like a good arm that could be a nice boom/bust type guy since he's kinda under the radar from a small town. Guess we'll find out.

I'm very happy with how day 1 went. Hopefully we can keep it going today.

Here's some more info on Garrett Fulenchek

quote:

Because he comes from a tiny town -- Howe, Texas, which has a population of 2,600 -- and didn't pitch on the showcase circuit last summer, Fulenchek was relatively unknown before he impressed scouts with his velocity and projectability at Perfect Game's World Wood Bat Association World Championship last October. He has continued to raise his profile this spring and could be the second high school player drafted from Texas, behind only potential No. 1 overall pick Tyler Kolek.

Fulenchek's best pitch is a hard sinker that runs from 90-94 mph and could get quicker as he fills out his frame. His slider has improved during his senior season, and though it lacks some consistency, it has late bite and could become a plus pitch in the future. He also demonstrates feel for his changeup, though he doesn't have to use it much.

The Dallas Baptist recruit is getting better at repeating his mechanics and commanding his pitches. If he continues to develop like he has in the past year, Fulenchek eventually could become a frontline starter in the big leagues.

Coming out of high school with a sinker in the low 90's is awesome, hopefully he can get that slider worked out, every good sinker baller needs a slider

quote:

Slapping a frontline ceiling on a the kid at this time seems like a reach to me, but that said, I'm sure Atlanta did their homework. It'll be interesting to see the development of his changeup under the Braves' tutelage; the changeup will go a long way towards determining his ultimate future.

I can't imagine facing 90+ sinking pitches in high school.

88+ straight fastballs was crazy enough for me

Seriously

And he has an "inconsistent" Slider, which means he's probably drilled a few people in his day

I thought some people might think this is interesting... I played baseball at the same high school Michael Chavis went to. The year after I graduated, he became a freshman.

I remember hearing about how he was like the best player of his age in the country or something.

We made it further in the playoffs than he ever did.
