Prep pitcher Brandon Barriera shut himself down to protect his arm before the MLB Draft? Has this ever happened before?
Manage episode 331666898 series 2998635
In today's show, we're reviewing the latest MLB Draft news and notes - Prep pitcher Brandon Barriera voluntarily ended his season, skipping the postseason, to protect his arm and avoid the overuse injuries all too prevalent in the playoffs with young pitchers. Was it the right call, and will this be the new standard for highly-scouted talent going forward? The MLB Draft Combine started on Tuesday - what's the format, who will be there, and how can you get information about the players and the happenings (or even attend, if you're local)? And why are so fewer college pitchers drafted in the first two rounds now as compared to twenty years ago?
