Three weeks before the amateur draft, Baseball America has posted a mock draft of the first round. With their #21 pick, the BA crew has the Tigers selecting reliever Andrew Cashner, who was the closer for Texas Christian this season.
With one more game remaining in TCU's season before the Mountain West tournament, Cashner has an 8-3 record with eight saves in 26 appearances, and 71 strikeouts in 46 1/3 innings. (I'm pretty sure I'm reading that right. Check for yourself.)
- Here's a draft report on Cashner from MILB.com, detailing his pitching repertoire that includes a 97-98 m.p.h fastball and an 87-88 m.p.h. slider.
- John Sickels has Cashner ranked seventh among the top college pitchers in the draft.
- And here's what Jonathan Mayo has to say in his latest Draft Report.
