Junior, U of Arizona
Weight: 200 lbs
Jeff’s Quick Take: Park and Scheduled Adjusted ERA of 1.61 with adjusted 103 Ks and 21 BBs. And you guessed it, Kurt Heyer starred in the Cape Cod League for the Orleans Cardinals. He put up those huge numbers through the deception in his windup, not through overpowering hitters. He’s had great stamina through the years with Arizona and the Cardinals were certainly try him at starter in the minors, but it seems like he will eventually end up in the bullpen. He’s known for his advanced approach and poise on the mound. (I hate the word “poise” with athletes, but I couldn’t think of a better one there.) In the sixth round, to get this sort of quality pitcher, seems like a good pick for the Cardinals. The rest after the jump per usual.
