With the sixth overall pick, the Diamondbacks have selected:
Barret Loux, RHP, Texas A&M
The DBacks were expected to look elsewhere, so this is a bit of a surprise, but Loux did manage a 2.60 ERA and 136 strikeouts in 104 innings this past season. The drawback is that he doesn't have incredible stuff, preferring instead to change speeds and throw strikes. His fastball hovers in the low-90s, and his changeup is pretty good, but his breaking balls need a good bit of work. Loux doesn't look like an ace in the making. More likely, he winds up a #3 or #4, with the bullpen being a possibility.
