7th Round Pick

Miles Mikolas, RHP from Nova Southeastern in Florida

A 6'5" 220 lb starting pitcher, Miles has a fastball up to 94 with a good curveball. Is anyone sensing a trend?

Nice to see the organization trying to add pitchers that are more on the stuff end of the spectrum as opposed to pitchability. I am assuming the organization wanted to add more upside players to complement previous drafts.

"Anyone sensing a trend"

Been burnt by Slider throwers ending up with TJ Surgery too much?

We like size and wanted to add as much "stuff" as possible. There were a lot of big arms in this draft.
