2013 Draft-Notes - Dustin Driver, Colin Moran , Nick Palewicz, Tyler Brunnemann


Dustin Driver RHP  Wenatchee (Wash.) HS  Ht.: 6-2. Wt.: 210. B/T: R/R. Driver is one of the true power arm prospects in the 2013 class. His fastball sits in the low 90s for the entire game with more still in the tank. His delivery is deceptive and gets on hitters quickly. He also throws a changeup and developing breaking ball. He is verbally committed to UCLA. 
Colin Moran 3B North Carolina- The best hitter in college who comes from strong big league bloodlines as the nephew of former UNC star B.J Surhoff. A fiery player who is ultra competitive. Coach Mike Fox told the newsobserver (NC) “we said from the very beginning. It’s the best trait and then it is his worst trait….there’s an edge there and I think all really competitive athletes have. There’s that edge, and when they’re right to that edge, it makes them really, really good. But when you cross over the edge, you know, sometimes bad things happen.” This bad thing was a tantrum he pulled after a 3-1 loss to NC State where he punched a door and broke his hand costing him 21 games. (His team went 13-8 without him) He should stick at 3B and provide the potential #3 bat in the order with the ability to get on base a lot. http://pinetarpress.com/top-11-2013-draft-august-15th-2012/  
RHP Nick Palewicz, Washington -- Palewicz had just an OK spring for the Huskies, but showed some serious strides this summer. He made nine appearances and had a 2.92 ERA in 37 innings of work. He also struck out 36 and walked six, while teams hit him at a .248 clip. PG
