Round 6, Pick 187 $237,600

Name: Marcel Renteria

Position: RHP

Age: 22

B/T: R/R

HT/WT: 5’11”

Scouting Reports:

BA 483

Just 5-foot-10, 175 pounds, Renteria nevertheless may have a bullpen future in pro ball. A transfer from Pima (Ariz.) JC, he stepped in as New Mexico State’s ace and led it to the top seed in the Western Athletic Conference tournament. He pitched poorly there but had a strong season thanks to two above-average pitches, a 92-94 mph fastball that touches 97 but can lack plane, and a power curveball that he used as his strikeout pitch. His 9.8 K/9 led the conference.

Thoughts:

Underslot with high upside.
