    I wonder if that kid's parents had ever heard of Boogie Nights when they chose his name.

    The Pirates draft a kid who talks about hitting batters in his interview.

    Because of course they do.

    Is Daxton Fulton a real person or a character out of a Clive Cussler book?

    After an impressive fall and a pair of dominant starts in which he averaged two strikeouts per inning to open 2020, Roa started generating top-three-round buzz. His stuff and command fell off against better competition in his next two outings before the season abruptly ended, leaving clubs unsure what exactly to make of him. Nevertheless, he and projected top-five-overall pick Asa Lacy give Texas A&M its best lefty-righty prospect duo since Chance Caple and Casey Fossum went in the first 48 selections in 1999.

    Roa initially sat at 92-94 mph with his fastball this spring, peaking at 96 with some armside run before his heater lost a couple of ticks of velocity and straightened out. All three of his secondary pitches are at least solid when he's at his best. Scouts debate whether his hard 11-5 curveball or fading, sinking changeup is better, while his low-80s slider is his least consistent offering.

    Roa has thrown strikes throughout his college career, averaging 2.0 walks per nine innings until issuing eight free passes in nine frames in his final two starts. Even before his late downturn, his control was significantly ahead of his command, so he'll have to do a better job of locating his pitches. He uses his strong 6-foot-4 build and an overhand delivery to create difficult downhill angle.

    Re: Day 2 MLB Draft

    They said on the telecast some scouts had a 70 on this changeup. With that spin rate on his slider, and a solid fastball. A newly created 70 changeup really makes this an interesting pick.
