Scouting the 2015 Draft: Kyle Molnar

Kyle Molnar is a RHP out of Aliso Viejo, CA.  A high schooler who goes 6'3", 205 lbs.  He has an easy delivery with excellent command of a low 90's FB that tops out at 94.  PG says he has projection.  He also has a MLB average breaking ball and a plus changeup.  BA has him ranked #47 in their early draft ranking while Kiley McDaniel of Fangraphs has him at #51.  McDaniel comments that he has a 3 pitch mix and keeps improving but questions his projectability.  He is a UCLA commit.


  1. passan on the trouble with mlb pitching and the amount of injuries

  2. Molnar is another one I like. If he's available at #31, I'd have no problem taking him. I'm sure some guys will fall off a bit this spring as injuries always occur, but that crop of prep arms is looking very strong right now, as we've said multiple times.

  3. D1 baseball has an article on a rising pitching prospect who plays for Hawaii by the name of LJ Brewster who is a junior and a converted 3rd baseman. It was amazing to watch him come into a blowout game last year and throw 93 mph. He was a 3rd baseman hitting 170 at the time and showed a better arm then all their pitchers. He continued to throw well in the fall so it's a no Brainer that he's a starting pitcher now off to a great start 3-1 record 1.75 ERA. I mention him since you've said you're interested in sleeper prospects from non pac10 schools
