Cannon Chadwick was drafted by the Mets in the ninth round. That’s a little bit of a surprise, but his slider has potential if he can master his command.
Taccolini just went 10th round to the Padres, 11 picks after Chadwick.
Really happy for both those guys! I can’t help but think both have their best in front of them. Both have so much potential.
Could be. It has happened before.
Remember Dan Wright back in the early-mid 90s? Great fastball but was only an average college pitcher for Arkansas. After he signed, he learned how to use his skills and ended up playing in the majors for several years until arm trouble ended his career.
