2012 MLB Draft: Orioles Select Kevin Gausman from LSU

Kevin Gausman, RHP, Louisiana State University: Gausman was an unsigned sixth-round pick of the Dodgers in the 2010 draft. He’s had an excellent season, going 11-1 in 16 starts for LSU, posting a 2.72 ERA with a 128 strikeouts and only 27 walks in 115 innings, with 100 hits allowed. Gausman fires mid-90s heat from a 6-5, 190 frame, mixing it with an excellent change-up. His breaking ball is still a work in progress but has strong moments, and his upside is as high as anyone’s. He projects as a number-one starter, and would make a terrific one-two punch with phenom Dylan Bundy, already in the farm system. Gausman is a draft-eligible sophomore and should be signable this early in the draft. He was a sixth-round pick back in 2010 from a Colorado high school. He still has some remaining physical projection, unusual for a college pitcher with his sort of experience.
