Scouting Reports:

Baseball America State Draft Report 2017, Texas, #50

Kaylor Chafin, LHP, Texas A&M
As an undersized lefty, Chafin arrived at Texas A&M as a freshman and quickly discovered that he wasn’t ready for the Southeastern Conference. He redshirted that year and transferred to Blinn (Texas) JC the next year to get needed innings. Even after that dose of experience, Chafin was used minimally as a redshirt sophomore upon his return to Texas A&M. But this year he took a big step forward as a crafty lefty with an 84-90 mph fastball and an above-average curveball. Chafin also throws a changeup, but his success is largely based around his ability to locate both inside and out with advanced command. He’s a lefty reliever moving forward and, as such, he will have to decide if he’s ready for pro ball as a later-round pick this year or if he wants to wait to be a senior sign.

Thoughts:

Sounds like a signable Lefty Only One Out Guy. Kingsport Bullpen
