Round 11: Brian Rauh, RHP, Chapman

(Richard Matamoros/Chapman's official site)
Chapman Bio

Sean's one sentence analysis:
Rauh likely projects as a reliever in professional ball, with a fastball that reaches the low 90s and three secondary pitches that are decent but unspectacular.

Pre-draft rankings:
#437 in Baseball America's top 500
#4 in Baseball America's Division III top prospects (1/31/12)
#93 in Baseball America's top California prospects

Thoughts from the community:
Rauh utterly dominated his opponents during his three seasons at Chapman, going 30-1 with a 1.78 ERA and 11.06 K/9. This year, he held opposing batters to a .159 batting average against. I'm a huge fan of his 122/29 K/BB ratio this year as well.

"He pitches from a high slot, and most of his stuff seems to go north to south. He works in the 88-91 mph range and flashes an average (but inconsistent) slider, a serviceable downer curve and changeup with sink." - Baseball America
