Drafthype.com posted their 2011 MLB Mock Draft last week. With the fourth overall pick, Draft Hype has the Orioles selecting right handed pitcher Sonny Gray from Vanderbilt.
The 5 foot 11 inch 180 pound starter is compared mostly to Roy Oswalt is projected to be a top five pick this season.
Here’s what Draft Hype had to say about Gray.
Gray generally sits in the low 90’s with his fastball, occasionally bumping it up into the mid-90s. He complements his fastball with an above-average slider and an improving change-up. He has been very consistent this season at Vanderbilt and will likely be a top 5 pick come draft day.
Eight of Draft Hype’s Top 10 draft picks are from college, six of those ten are pitchers.
