  1. 9 Ty Madden TexasRHP Notes: BA pick: With Hoglund off the board to the Rockies, I was deciding between Madden, Louisiana State righthander Jaden Hill and the top prep prospects on the board, shortstops Brady House and Kahlil Watson and outfielder James Wood. After allowing three earned runs in four innings to Mississippi State in his opening start of the season, Madden has been rock solid, allowing just five earned runs over 35.1 innings against Brigham Young, Houston, South Carolina, Baylor and Oklahoma.
  2. Los Angeles Angels Erik Rivera, LHP/OF — One of many two-way players the Angels are trying to develop, Rivera holds the most promise on the mound. With a fastball up to 95 mph out of a smooth, athletic delivery and an improving breaking ball and changeup, he is quickly emerging as one of the Angels most intriguing young pitchers. William Holmes, RHP/OF — Formerly known as William English, Holmes is another teenager who was drafted as a two-way player but holds more promise as a pitcher. His fastball has already jumped from 90-95 mph when he was drafted to 93-97 mph with cutting li
  3. 9. Los Angeles Angels -- Jose Alberto Rivera, RHP (Astros) Scouting Report: The Astros signed Rivera signed for $10,000 at 19—relatively older for a Latin American signing—so he didn't make his full-season debut until he was 22 in 2019. He has electric arm speed, producing a fastball that ranges from 97-102 mph with lively tailing action. He throws a split-change in the mid-80s, a pitch that progressed throughout the 2019 season to flash above-average by the end of that year. He has a hard slider in the mid-80s as well, but it's not reliable in terms of the pure quality of the pitch or hi

  5. Chris Rodriguez, RHP, Angels Rodriguez showed some of the best stuff of any pitcher in Arizona. His fastball sat 94-96 mph with sinking, tailing life and he commanded three secondary pitches that all drew plus grades from evaluators. His slider, in particular, jumped forward to become the best pitch in his arsenal. Most important, Rodriguez was durable. After being beset by injuries throughout his career, Rodriguez handled a normal workload and didn’t miss any time while maintaining premium stuff throughout.
  6. Erik Rivera, LHP/OF, Angels Rivera shows the most promise of the many two-way players the Angels are trying to develop. The 2019 fourth-round pick showed a good lefthanded swing with power at the plate and a fastball up to 95 mph from the left side on the mound at instructs. Evaluators generally prefer Rivera as a pitcher and think that should be his primary role moving forward, but he showed enough offensive potential to contribute as a pinch-hitter or designated hitter on days he didn't pitch.
