Scouting the 2016 Draft: Round 7 #205 Garrett Williams

Garrett Williams, LHP, Oklahoma St.  DOB:  9/15/1994.  6'1", 200 lbs.

2014:  4-1, 5.40, 41.2 IP, 31 BB, 50 K's.
2015:  1-0, 4.91, 18.1 IP, 19 BB, 25 K's.
2016:  2-0, 6.23, 13 IP, 10 BB, 19 K's.

Wiliams has been a lefty reliever for OSU in college and likely profiles as a Lefty Specialist in the pros.  You can never have too many of those in your system.  The Baseball Cube has him at 6'3", 185 lbs.  From his pics, I'd say he's closer to his Oklahoma St bio numbers.


  1. I love this pick. Would have been happy with him in the 2nd. Liked him in HS a bunch.

    1. Yeah, I've done a bit more reading on him and he seems to be a real hard thrower, 93-96 MPH. He just kind of got buried in the OSU bullpen for some reason. The Giants are really patient with guys like him and usually give them a chance to start at some point along the way. If it doesn't work out, hey, lefty specialists who throw that hard don't grow on trees!
