Round 7, Pick 217, Slot Value $186,200
Name: Conner O’Neil
HT/WT: 6’2″ 195 lbs
O’Neil played at Central Arizona JC for one season before transferring to Cal State Northridge. He became the Matadors’ all-time career saves leader with 39. O’Neil was drafted by the Tigers in the 32nd round after his junior year but returned to school and had his best year yet as a senior, going 5-4, 2.70 with 35 hits allowed in 50 innings. His fastball tops out at 92 mph and he serves hitters a healthy diet of sliders to get his outs. O’Neil also has a curveball and changeup that he can mix in to keep hitters off-balance. He commands the strike zone, reads swings well, manipulates the ball as necessary, and stays composed on the mound. O’Neil isn’t flashy, but his track record, deep arsenal of pitches and makeup make him an interesting bullpen option.
Underslot Senior Sign, Brooklyn Bound.
