Andrew Thurman, RHP, UC Irvine
Class: Junior; Height: 6-3; Weight: 205
Thurman turned in another solid campaign, throwing 100.3 innings with 91 strikeouts (8.16 K/9) and just 19 walks (1.70 BB/9). This, of course, comes on the heels of an impressive sophomore season and a strong showing in the Cape, where his K-rate spiked noticeably (11.47 K/9 — including the Cape playoffs).
Projection: Useful, #4-type ceiling. He’s always shown a strong ability to pound the zone, average-ish K-rates, and teams could certainly do worse in the latter part of the first or early second rounds.
Ceiling: 1.5- to 2.0-win player
Likelihood of Reaching His Ceiling: Low to Moderate
Drafted: Late First or Second Round
