    I went back to update the stats through the end of the season. Rocker threw 828 breaking balls. Opponents hit .081/.100/.108 against his breaking balls with 18 hits (12 singles, 6 2Bs).

    I think their is a possibility because he is pretty polished.

    If he dominates next year you may see him late in 2022, but Iíll say more like 2023.

    I dont understand why Rocker dropped to us. I am guessing signability concerns because otherwise how is he available to us at 10?

    Any predictions on what we do in Round 2? Obviously what we do is now built in Rocker because he definetly will be signing over slot value but I hope we also follow the same pattern from the previous 2 years which was using our first 3 picks on first round talent or at least guys who fell further than expected

    Kumar Rocker

    Bats: R

    Class: 4YR JR

    Height: 6' 5"

    Pick Value: $4.74m

    Throws: R

    DOB: 11/22/99

    Weight: 245

    Rocker ranked No. 23 on MLB Pipeline's Draft Top 200 as a Georgia high schooler in 2018, but his strong commitment to Vanderbilt dropped him all the way to the Rockies in the 38th round. An immediate weekend starter for the Commodores, he capped an up-and-down freshman season with a spectacular finish, tossing a 19-strikeout no-hitter against Duke in the NCAA Super Regionals and earning two victories and Most Outstanding Player honors at the College World Series. He entered the year as the top-rated and most famous prospect in the 2021 Draft, and he mostly lived up to expectations while helping Vandy return to the CWS finals and leading NCAA Division I in wins (14) and strikeouts (179 in 122 innings, tying teammate Jack Leiter). The son of former NFL defensive lineman Tracy Rocker, Kumar is a physical right-hander who can overpower hitters with his fastball and breaking pitches. He usually operates at 93-96 mph with his heater, which can reach 99 and features some run and sink but also can get flat at times, though his velocity sat in the low 90s for three weeks early in the season. He notched all 19 of his whiffs in his no-hitter with his slider, a mid-80s beast with power and depth that grades as plus-plus, and he also has a low-80s curveball with more vertical break. Rocker hasn't used his changeup much, and while his fourth offering has average potential and some sink, it gets too firm at times. He throws strikes but has just average command, and he'll need more finesse for days when he doesn't have his top-notch stuff. The Golden Spikes Award finalist has the makings of a frontline starter but isn't a finished product, and scouts would like to see him dominate more consistently.

    You might be able to pick one guy that can go slightly over slot and then draft seniors.
