Robbie Ross

School: Lexington Christian Academy (Kentucky)

Class: HS Senior

Height: 5′11″

Weight: 180 lbs.

Bats: Left

Throws: Left

Pos: LHP

Hometown: Nicholasville, KY

Commitment: Kentucky

Previously Drafted: None

Strengths:
Ross draws comparisons to Mets closer Billy Wagner. His fastball sits at 89 mph and he pairs it with a host of solid-average secondary pitches. His best off-speed offering is his slider.

Weaknesses:
Being compared to Wagner also means that Ross is short (only 5-foot-11).  He has limited projectability.

The Future:
Late first round/supplemental round.
