Scouting the 2015 Draft: Marcus Brakeman
Stanford RHP Marcus Brakeman is on the smallish side at 6'1", 180 lbs. He had a breakout of sorts in the Cape Cod League last summer. His FB ran 89-91 MPH for Stanford in 2014, but took a jump to 91-95 at The Cape. He combines the FB with a plus changeup and a hard slurve that sounds like an average pitch. BA has him at #36 in their early draft rankings while Kiley McDaniel of Fangraphs has him at #33.
