2015 Draft Profile - RHP - Walker Buehler - Vanderbilt - UPDATED 8-15-14


8-15-14 - 

7-27-14  -  In game two, Cuba jumped all over Team USA right from the get-go, scoring twice in the first frame and putting up a four-spot in the second before Walker Buehler (Vanderbilt) came out of the bullpen to settle things down. He would go on to throw 6.1 innings of relief while making his Collegiate National Team debut with Cuba managing just one unearned run on four hits against him during that time.

6-30-14 - 6-30-14 – Through The Fence – Early College Prospects - 6. Walker Buehler, RHP, Vanderbilt - A 6’-1”, 180 pound right-hander with a four-pitch mix, Buehler was simply dazzling this season. Over 16 starts, he had a 2.64 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 111 K/31 BB over 102.1 innings. His fastball sits 92-94 mph with late life and his curveball is an above-average offering with great depth and bite. He adds a slider and change-up and has great command off all four. He has great mound presence and never rattles. Will likely battle Carson Fulmer for the Friday night starter role next season, and Vanderbilt is loaded with first-round talent — as you will see. http://throughthefencebaseball.com/2015-mlb-draft-early-30-college-prospects/43327

6-3-14 - Mack - We're going to come back and take a look at this kid after the NCAA playoffs are over this season.

Walker Buehler has been living all season under the shadow of RHP Tyler Beede. The 6-1, 170 pound sophomore relies on a 92-94 fastball with, as one scount puts it 'late life'. He also throw a curve, change-up, and slider, all of which need work  Coaches love his attitude and credit him for never being rattled during a game.
