MLB.com did a nice recap with quotes from Vice President of scouting Dan Kantrovitz regarding all of the Day 2 picks if you are looking for a little more info.
I will try to update this post a few times throughout the afternoon as the Cubs 11-20th round picks come in, but I am going to be in the car for the latter stages, so I will probably not get all of the picks posted until later tonight.
11-334: RHP Gage Ziehl – Penfield HS (NY)
I’m so fired up for 2021 RHP Gage Ziehl (Penfield) on his dominance at the #Super60 today.
The Miami commit touched 95 w/ the FB while mixing in an advanced feel w/ the CB.. Thick lower half w/ a short-lightning fast arm circle @DiamondPro3 @Diamondpro13 @prepbaseball pic.twitter.com/YPkUy8lm2h— Dan Cevette (@DanCevette)
PBR-New York Player of the Year
Congrats to 2021 RHP & Miami commit Gage Ziehl (Penfield) who takes home the award.
Pitching: 5-0, 1 SV, 0.17 ERA, 42 IP, 91 K, 7 BB.
Hitting: .438, 3 2B, 5 HR, 16 BB, 3 K.— PBR New York (@PBRNewYork)
This is a nice prep upside selection. Will almost certainly take over the max $125K allotted for 11-20th round picks. Gage Ziehl surrendered just 1 run over 42 innings on his way to being named the Class AA Player of the Year in New York.
Throws in the mid-90s with a slider and change. Ziehl is lauded for repeatable mechanics which should help him profile as a starter in pro ball.
Here’s a nice article on him for some additional info.
12-364 OF Teo Banks – Permian HS (TX)
An OF with speed and power. Tulane commit. Also capable of low-90s of the mound.
