Kumar Rocker: 4 IP, 0 R, 8 K
Jack Leiter: 5 IP, 0 R, 8 K
The Nos. 1 & 6 prospects in this year’s Draft class were dominant in @VandyBoys' season-opening doubleheader sweep today: https://t.co/X553s9JkpO
have talked to scouts that love both Jack Leiter and Kumar Rocker, but Leiter seemed to be the consensus as their choice of no. 1 overall pick. He's already had four pitches with command, and showed polish beyond his years. Going to help that he's now throwing into high-90's.
Do all the analysts crapping whoever the pirates draft (rocker/leiter) not realize that the entire dev staff has turned over since 2018 and last year every one of their pitchers threw more breaking balls and 4 seamers. This is a buying opportunity on pirates pitching prospects.
Not gonna lie, I don’t know how the @Pirates are going to decide who to draft first between Kumar Rocker or Jack Leiter. Both are gonna be studs at the @mlb level! Gonna be fun to watch them pitch this season for Vandy ⚾️
