    Re: 2006 Official MLB Draft Thread

    Tennessee has developed a pipeline from South Florida, and Watson came to Knoxville after a celebrated prep career in Miami that included a stint on USA Baseball's youth national team. He was a 21st-round pick by the Giants in 2003, and blossomed into a hard-throwing reliever with an aggressive approach, after splitting time between the pen and Tennessee's rotation. Watson has two above-average pitches in his fastball and knuckle-curveball and can dial his fastball up to 94 mph, pitching at 90-92. His knuckle-curveball is a hard, tumbling pitch at 82-85 mph. Like his fastball, his secondary stuff is inconsistent, due in part to a lack of focus on the mound and inconsistent mechanics. Watson's arm works well, but he falls off the mound and spins out of his delivery, which leads to an inconsistent release point and erratic command. He's not timid, but his concentration seems to drift from outing to outing. He has some feel for a slider and changeup, and can be a successful reliever if he learns to command his two top pitches.

    I don't really like the college closer in round two unless he's that good.

    What MLB.Com says about Watson.

    A college closer with four usable pitches. He hasn't been consistent in his Junior year but when on is effective with his fastball and a nasty knuckle-curve.

    M2, there's Anderson going to the D-backs. Didn't fall too far from the Reds, but the fact he did is great.

    Sean Watson..

    You think Buckley will pull a "david bush" and convert him?

    MLB comment says that he has 4 usable pitches w/good fastball and nasty knuckle curve.

    Indians take Steven Wright from Hawaii. I really like that kid. More than Watson.
