With that said, I went with Vaughn Covington who I like just a little bit more.
He's got a very projectable frame, and is still in developmental ball, where he's impressed coaches with his improvement. He's also viewed as a power pitcher by many sites. To me, that suggests that he'll add a few MPH to his fastball on the way up. He's also made more appearances on prospect lists than anybody else left save perhaps Kyle McMyne (probably my next pick, despite his struggles).
I like what Covington brings to the table as well. We took a lot of over-slot arms this year that haven't been picked yet; I expect them to be fast movers in the next year.
