M’s Select RHP Tyler Burgoon for #312
I said I’d be around for ten rounds and we’re obviously getting into territory not as interesting to people who are not me. Burgoon is a right-hander out of U Michigan. Unlike the other guys selected thus far, he’s not a big Goon, in fact he’s under 5’10, but he throws low-90s and has managed to get up to 95 a time or two with some natural tail away from right-handers, and complements the heater with a great slider. Some outlets had him as a potential top 200 player here. Size and his probable future as a reliever is probably what allowed him to drop this far. If he does stay in the ‘pen, he’s another candidate to move fast. There’s a lot to be intrigued by there.
