EJ Encinosa | RHP, 22 yo, 6-5, 215 | 2012 Draft – 7 | (A-) 14 G, 17.1 IP, 3.12 ERA, 4.2 H/9, 5.2 BB/9, 10.9 K/9
Former Miami righty throws a mid-90’s fastball, but has only logged 29.2 professional innings in his career. Has he been injured? The stuff is there, but I’d like to see what he can do in full-season ball before getting too excited. A strong season in Augusta next year could move him up the board significantly.
