Like Louisiana Tech’s Luke Burnett, Green is 6-foot-8 and has a lot of promise. Green threw in the mid-90s before Tommy John surgery forced him to miss 2006 and most of 2007. He throws from a high sidearm arm slot and a crossfire angle, making it tough for hitters to pick up his pitches.
His slider has sweepy break but is inconsistent. He’ll be 22 when he’s drafted and he will have to prove to scouts that he’s healthy to merit a high draft pick.
#20-#30 draft pick overall
