The 2016 class for the state of Michigan is loaded with talent from top to bottom at all positions, and that is especially evident at the right-handed pitching position. There are already three talented pitchers already off the board in the number one, three and sixth overall prospects in Michigan's 2016 rankings. Karl Kauffmann (Michigan) is ranked 21st overall at Prep Baseball Report as he sits 86-87 mph with an easy arm action. Michael Mokma (Michigan State) with a big 6-foot-5 frame is ranked 44th overall while touching 87 mph. Jack Weisenburger (Michigan) consistantly sits in the upper-80s and is ranked 67th overall. Below we would like to highlight ten talented right-handers.
