There were many people who fell in the draft on day one, but A.J. Puk might have been the biggest steal of them all. Many believed Puk would go 1st overall to the Philadelphia Phillies, but instead he slipped to 6th overall to the Oakland Athletics. He has the tangible and intangible assets to be a star in Major League Baseball.
Puk has the body and and potential of a frontline starter. He stands 6’7 and weighs 230 lbs.

He has a plus-plus fastball and his secondary pitches all have the potential to be above average.
