Re: 2009 Redszone mock draft selection thread
With the 11th pick, the Colorado Rockies select LHP James Paxton, University of Kentucky.
He's a power lefty who racks up the strikeouts with a fastball in the mid-90s and a power slider. He needs to improve on his command and develop his third pitch, a changeup. The Rockies need to collect pitchers who keep the ball out of play, and Paxton fits the mold...
"On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
