Yankees 2013 13th round draft pick: Cale Coshow

cale-coshow13th Round, 404th Overall: Cale Coshow, RHP, Oklahoma Christian University, Year: JR, Bats: Right, Throws: Right, 6-foot-5, 260-pounds

Baseball America’s report:¬†Along with projected early-round picks Jonathan Gray and Dillon Overton, Coshow was part of a banner Oklahoma recruiting class in 2010, but he never did much for the Sooners. He redshirted in 2011 and worked just 13 innings in 2012, prompting his transfer to Oklahoma Christian. He helped pitch the Eagles to their first national tournament appearance in 41 years, as they advanced to the National Christian College Athletic Association World Series. Though Coshow is 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds and much watch his conditioning, his arm works well. He pitches with a 91-96 mph fastball, and he’ll show feel for a curveball and changeup. He has a fresh arm after not pitching much in the previous two seasons, but he’s still figuring out control and command.

MLB.com’s report:¬†After being used sparingly in two years at Oklahoma, Coshow transferred to Oklahoma Christian and became the staff ace. Coshow has a plus fastball that he can run up to 96 mph and also throws a curveball and a changeup, both of which could be average or better in the future. He does have weight problems, however, and lacks command of his pitches. Coshow was a top recruit coming out of high school and still has considerable upside. A team that thinks they can smooth out his command issues could take Coshow.

MY TAKE: Yet another huge pitcher. This one seems to have a bit more of a conditioning issue than the others, but almost seems to have more promise too. He can reach the mid-90’s and already has a variety of secondary offerings. The fact that they didn’t kill his arm in college can only be a good thing although it may mean that he’ll be a slow mover in the system.
