College Draft Profile: Trey Masek


Trey Masek, RHP, Texas Tech

Class: Junior; Height: 6-1; Weight: 195

Updated: 06/02/13

After a ho-hum showing as a freshman in 2011 (67 IP, 4.43 K/9 and 3.90 BB/9), Masek’s peripherals improved dramatically during his second season with Texas Tech. Used as a semi-swingman, the right-hander tossed 53 innings and averaged 7.81 K/9 and 3.40 BB/9 to go along with a 3.40 ERA.

This season, however, the Texas-native has made 11 starts, throwing 79 innings with 69 punch outs and 22 walks. He’s also sporting adjusted 1.82 ERA 3.18 FIP.

Projection: Analytically speaking, there’s really not a whole lot that separates Masek and Arizona State’s Trevor Williams, a player rumored to have first round potential. The problem, though, is Masek’s track record is incredibly short, throwing just 191 collegiate innings thus far, most of which came with below-average production. He has a peak as back rotation guy, maybe as a decent #4.

Ceiling: 1.5- to 2.0-win player

Likelihood of Reaching His Ceiling: Low to Moderate

Drafted: Second Round
