Braden Shipley is a right-hander from the University Of Nevada. He was taken with the 15th pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2013 First Year Player Draft. This also makes him the highest pick in any sport in Wolf Pack history. He has a great fastball that tops out at 98 mph, to go along with an improving curve ball, and a plus change up. He went 7-3 with a 2.77 ERA while striking out 102 batters in 107 2/3 innings this season for Nevada. He has the potential to be a future ace for the Diamondbacks. Arizona also believes that because he has only been pitching full time for a couple of seasons, there is more room for growth than most college pitchers.

Arizona Diamondbacks have one of the deepest farm systems in all of baseball, in terms of quality arms. They have Patrick Corbin pitching great for them this season, and Tyler Skaggs has already made two starts for them.

There is another pitcher they have in Archie Bradley, who is pitching lights out for Double-A Mobile and could be an ace for them in the rotation.

How quickly can a teams fortune change with top 5 MLB Draft Picks??  Think of the 119 Loss 2003 Detroit Tigers drafting Justin Verlander – and going to a World Series just 3 years later.

Tampa Bay Devil Rays picked 1st for many years, finally having their players come together in 2008, once Evan Longoria, James Shields, B.J. Upton and David Price asserted themselves in 2008.

A horrid Washington Nationals team losing 95 -100 Games every year drafted Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper in successive drafts – before cranking out a franchise record 98 Wins just  a couple of years later.

The Astros, Cubs, Rockies, Twins and Indians sure hope the 2013 Top 5 Picks will warrant heavy discussion as a great class of picks as the years go by.

MLB Mock Draft 

Before I start I just want to say that baseball is a very tough game so when I say he can be a all star or that he can have a curveball that is just unhittable – it may not happen……. and actually is very doubtful to fully reach the ceiling. Read the rest of this entry
