2020 Eligible Top 50 College Pitchers

David Seifert
Director of College Scouting

After just four weeks of games, we unfortunately reached the end of the 2020 college baseball season. As we await word for any changes to this year's draft, currently scheduled for June 8-10, the top prospects have sorted themselves out.

We released our Top 100 College Prospects in September with Emerson Hancock (Georgia), Asa Lacy (Texas A&M), Reid Detmers (Louisville), Carmen Mlodzinski (South Carolina) and J.T. Ginn (Mississippi State) leading the list of pitchers. Since that time two changes have been made as Ginn underwent Tommy John surgery earlier this month, while Mlodzinski wasn't as sharp during this abbreviated spring as he was last summer in the Cape Cod League and the past fall season. Replacing those two and jumping into the top five are Max Meyer (Minnesota) and Cade Cavalli (Oklahoma).

Gaining the most helium in our pitcher rankings is Meyer who is armed with an upper-90s fastball and a 70-grade slider. He floats into early 1st round conversations, up from a mid-second round ranking in September. Also making big jumps are Miami righty Slade Cecconi and Clemson lefty Sam Weatherly, who both will likely receive consideration early in the 2nd round, to as high as the back of the 1st.

Injuries to Ginn, and Jacob Palisch (Stanford) cause them to slide a bit, but they remain in the Top 50. And now, the Top 50 Pitchers:

Rank Pitcher Throws College
1 Asa Lacy LHP Texas A&M
2 Emerson Hancock RHP Georgia
3 Max Meyer RHP Minnesota
4 Reid Detmers LHP Louisville
5 Cade Cavalli RHP Oklahoma
