Round 9, Pick 277, $139,700
Name: Cannon Chadwick
HT/WT: 6’0″/190 lbs
“I started throwing a curveball and a change-up, but a lot of it just came from what (the Arkansas coaches) preached to me last year about getting extension on my fastball,” Chadwick said. “When I started slowing things down a little bit, I could think a little more about what I was doing and I got to where I could repeat that delivery, and get my fastball down on both sides of the plate.
“Being more confident in myself has helped me a lot recently.”
Chadwick is showing the type of confidence and velocity that caused Arkansas coaches to recruit him out of Paris Junior College in Texas. Van Horn called his low-80s slider “nasty” and said his fastball is over 90 MPH every time.

Low-90s fastball that plays up due to late release, decent slider and change. Shorter guy, low arm angle, relief only.

A senior sign starter with the ability to throw in the low-90’s, up to 93. Another pick likely to get a low bonus for creativity for the 11-20 rounds.
