2015 Draft Profile - RHP - Riley Ferrell - TCU - UPDATED 9-11-14


9-11-14 – Fangraphs Top 50 Players in Draft - 35. Riley Ferrell, RHP, TCU: Ferrell sat out this summer but is plenty well-known to scouts as the two-year closer for the Horned Frogs and last summer for Team USA: he sits 94-97 with reports he’s hit 99 or 100 mph and an above average to plus slider, but it’s relief-only. http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/2015-mlb-draft-top-51/

6-30-14 – Through The Fence – Early College Prospects - 12. Riley Ferrell, RHP, TCU - A lot of Ferrell’s draft stock will be determined by his role next year. He has worked out of the pen his first two seasons and has been dominant. Over 31 appearances this season, he had a 0.79 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 70 K/14 BB over 45.1 innings. He held opponents to a silly .132 BAA and had a 13.9 K/9 ratio as his fastball has great life and he has very good command of the pitch. The 6’-1”, 200 pound right-hander turned heads when he was sitting 95-98 mph with Collegiate Team USA over the summer. His secondary stuff is still developing and the progress of those offerings will decide his starter/reliever role. http://throughthefencebaseball.com/2015-mlb-draft-early-30-college-prospects/43327
