Arizona Diamondbacks: Trevor Bauer (RHP, UCLA): The 6-2, 185 pound Bauer isn't huge physically but is a great athlete with an outstanding arm, using a low-to-mid-90s fastball, a nasty curveball, and a strong changeup. He put up better numbers than teammate Gerrit Cole, and draws Tim Lincecum comparisons due to his mechanics and long-toss training regime. Like Cole, he has number one starter upside. He went 13-2, 1.25 ERA with a 203/36 K/BB in 137 innings.
Bauer has exceptional makeup and is a student of pitching. Although some are concerned about his heavy workload, he's shown no ill effects in college, and his ability to repeat his mechanics so well should help him stay healthy. He shouldn't need much major-league time and could be in the majors very quickly, perhaps as soon as September.
This pick isn't unexpected, but it now looks like Anthony Rendon could slide ... How much chaos will this cause?
