Tim Melville

School: Holt HS (Missouri)

Class: HS Senior

Height: 6′4″

Weight: 190 lbs.

Bats: Right

Throws: Right

Pos: rhp

Hometown: Wentzville, MO

Commitment: North Carolina

Previously Drafted: None

Strengths:
Melville is a lean, 6-foot-4 righthander who is an elite prospect thanks to his command, intangibles and projectability. Melville commands a 86-94 mph fastball and shows feel for a promising curve and changeup. He’s also got all the intangibles — advanced makeup, athleticism, a competitive edge and the ability to set up hitters. One scout compared to Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes and Nationals prospect Colton Willems.

Weaknesses:
Melville’s stuff is a shade weaker than Gerrit Cole and Sonny Gray.

The Future:
Top 5 picks.
