PBR Draft 100 Extras
October 6, 2016
By Nathan Rode
The first edition of the 2017 PBR Draft 100 was released on Monday and we’ve been breaking it down this week. On Tuesday, we took a by the numbers look at the list and Wednesday’s Hotlist had reports on players that elevated their draft stock throughout the summer. Today, we go beyond the Top 100 and highlight some players that just missed making it. This isn’t necessarily Nos. 101-110, but these players were considered and may find themselves on the inside before next June.
Benjamin Casparius, RHP/3B, Staples HS, CT
A North Carolina recruit, Casparius looks the part with a strong frame at 6-foot-1, 197 pounds. On the mound, he employs a simple delivery and lands slightly closed. His fastball sits 88-90 mph with some arm-side sink and he mixes in a curveball with 11/5 shape at 71-74.
