Scouting the 2017 Draft: Jacob Heatherly

Jacob Heatherly LHP, HS.  6'3", 210 lbs.

Jacob Heatherly is a stout HS lefty who hails from Alabama.  He doesn't throw in the high 90's, but commands a FB that sits 89-93 MPH and has hit 95 to both sides of the plate and adds 2 advanced secondary offerings that he delivers from a mid-high 3/4 arm slot.  His size and stuff comp to Brett Anderson who is a pretty good pitcher when he's healthy.


DrB's Updated 2017 Draft Board

1.  Jordan Adell, OF, HS.
2.  Mark Vientos, SS, HS.
3.  Hunter Greene, RHP, HS.
4.  Tanner Houck, RHP, College(Missouri).
5.  JB Bakauskas, RHP, College(UNC)
6.  Jeren Kendall, OF, College(Vanderbilt).
7.  JJ Schwarz, C, College(Florida).
8.  Alex Faedo, RHP, College(Florida).
9.  Kyle Wright, RHP, College(Vanderbilt).
10.  Alex Lange, RHP, College(LSU).
11.  Brady McConnell, SS, HS.
12.  Alex Scherff, RHP, HS.
13.  Hans Crouse, RHP, HS.
14.  Trevor Rogers, LHP, HS.
16.  DJ Hall, LHP, HS.
17.  Conor Uselton, OF, HS.
18.  Tristan Beck, RHP, College(Stanford).
19.  Pavin Smith, 1B, College(Virginia).
20.  Brandon McKay, LHP, College(Louisville).
21.  Blayne Enlow, RHP, HS.
22.  Hagen Danner, RHP, HS.
23.  Alejandro Toral, 1B, HS.
24.  Colton Hock, RHP, College(Stanford).


Update:  I saw a report that Tristan Beck was having back problems and may not start the season on time for Stanford.  A prolonged absence would likely lower his stock enough that the draft eligible sophomore would wait until next draft when he would still have a year of eligibility for leverage.
