“The Jays have selected left-handed pitcher Brandon Barriera with the 23rd overall pick.
This will be the first time that the Mark Shapiro era Blue Jays will select a prep pitcher with their first round pick. Despite that, this is a pretty good pick. It’s been said that Barriera has some of the best pure stuff in the draft class.
According to MLB Pipeline, he has multiple fastballs which sit in the low 90s, but has touched 99 mph. He has a plus slider and a feel for his changeup, but it’ll need to develop some more.
His pitching has sinking action and his slider and has impressive spin rates, sitting between 2,500-2,600 rpm. He occasionally throws in a mid-70s curveball, but it’s not used as often.
At the age of 14, the musical genius started his and began creating compositions and songs for instruments like the violin and piano.
“Looking at the 22 teams before me, they’re going to regret this. I’m going to be the best pitcher in the MLB.”
