2013 MLB Draft results: Pick Nos. 40-44

Christian Petersen

Pitchers continue to fly off the shelf in the second round of the 2013 MLB Draft. The Astros, Rockies Cubs, Twins and Marlins added strong arms, while the Rockies went for a third baseman.

No. 40: RHP Andrew Thurman, Houston Astros

A sound, repeatable delivery allows Thurman to have excellent command of four pitches, the best being his changeup, which makes up for an average fastball. He can run it up into the mid-90s, but sits in the 90-92 range. Thurman's changeup tends to be a 10 to 12 mph drop from that, and fools hitters enough to where he has little hesitation about doubling up on it.

No. 41: LHP Rob Zastryzny, Chicago Cubs

Baseball America on Zastryzny:

Zastrzyny effortlessly adds and subtracts from his fastball, usually sitting around 90 mph but capable of dropping down to 86 or elevating four-seamers up in the zone at 95.

No. 42: 3B Ryan McMahon, Colorado Rockies

MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo on McMahon:

McMahon looks like has the tools to stick at third as well, giving him the chance to be a very intriguing high-upside high school hitter in this year's Draft class.

No. 43: RHP Ryan Eades, Minnesota Twins

MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo on Eades:

He'll hit 94 mph with his fastball, and he has a good curve and changeup to go along with it to give him a good three-pitch mix.

No. 44: RHP Trevor Williams, Miami Marlins

ESPN's Keith Law on Williams:

doesn't miss a ton of bats... but earns plaudits from scouts for his plus control and competitiveness on the mound.
