Scouting the 2015 Draft: Joe DeMers

Joe DeMers is a 6'2", 235 lbs HS RHP out of Pleasant Hill, CA.  He had been on draft radar screens for some time, but made headlines yesterday by firing a perfect game against a strong opponent.  His arsenal includes both a 4 seam and 2 seam FB with average curve that sit 91-93.  He has hit 97 MPH while pitching in relief. He has an average curve, slider and change.  He is known for his command.  No projection in the body.  He was not listed in BA's early top 50 draft prospects, but Kiley McDaniel of Fangraphs had him at #43.  His college commit is to Washington.  He is probably singable for second round money.

  1. First no-hitter (& perfecto) of his career. Interestingly enough, he only had 5 K in that game. Must have been a ground ball machine. Either Baseball America or Maxpreps has DeMers' College Park team ranked #1 in the entire country.
