Round 4 (121) - P Landon Maroudis - Calvary Christian High School (FL)

Landon Maroudis was selected 121st overall out of Calvary Christian High School in Florida. He stands 6’3 and has reached 96 MPH with his fastball and has shown solid control of his off-speed pitches as well. The right-hander has displayed great athleticism as a two-way player in high school though his best path to the major leagues would be to focus solely on his pitching. ranked him as the 72nd prospect prior to the draft, including grades of 55 for his fastball, 50 for the slider, 55 for the changeup, 50 for control and an overall grade of 50. He is committed to play for the North Carolina State Wolfpack next season, but he will have to choose between the NCAA or the professional minor leagues, but it seems like there is great value and upside with this prospect.

Round 5 (157) - P Connor O’Halloran - Michigan

Connor O’Halloran was selected 157th overall from the University of Michigan, and is from Mississauga, Ontario. The hometown kid is a finesse style pitcher that doesn’t possess explosive pitches, topping out at 93 MPH with his fastball, though his sweeping slider provides great deception, allowing for his fastball to feel faster than it actually is. He owned an ERA of 4.11 with 110 strikeouts over 103 innings. is projecting to become a back-end rotation arm and was ranked as the 164th prospect prior to the draft, with a fastball grade of 45, a slider grade of 55, a changeup grade of 50, a control grade of 55 and overall grade of 40. He has a ways to go of course, but he has great intangibles and should develop nicely.

Round 6 (184) - OF Jace Bohrofen - Arkansas

Jace Bohrofen was selected 184th overall from the University of Arkansas, where he hit .318 with 16 home runs and 52 RBI in 60 games this past season. He hits the ball extremely hard and has shown the ability to drive the ball in the air to all parts of the field. He’s also shown great improvements during his time in college raising both his slugging percentage and OPS each season. He has raw power and is developing a more disciplined approach at the plate, while also playing an average corner outfield position. ranked him as the 66th prospect prior to the draft, with a hit grade of 50, power grade of 55, run grade of 45, arm grade of 50, field grade of 50 and an overall grade of 50. For a sixth round selection, Bohrofen has a chance to rise through the system rather quickly.
