Right-handed pitcher Blake Douglas is coming off a nice season at Weatherford College, and Major League Baseball’s Miami Marlins noticed.
The Marlins picked Douglas, a 2011 McKinney Boyd graduate, in the 33rd round of the MLB Draft on Saturday, with selection No. 982 overall.
IRFast, a baseball blog that focuses on scouting, wrote last September that “Blake Douglas is a big right-handed pitcher (6-5) and hides the ball in his body. His fastball has armside tail and he keeps it pretty low and it comes in on righties. He throws a rare change with a little dip, but it’s best attribute is his speed differential.”
