More analysis and notes:
The big lefty was an effective closer for the University of San Francisco Dons this season, throwing 45 and 2/3 innings of 2.36 ERA ball. I'm impressed by his 40:12 K:BB ratio as well. He also pitched for the Bethesda Big Train last summer.
Steve Langsam of Waterman's hometown newspaper, the Martinez News-Gazette, interviewed him about his career at USF and his transition to pro ball on 6/14/12.
Waterman signed with the Nationals for $100,000, which is the maximum teams can spend past the 10th round without counting against the team's overall bonus pool.
