37th Round, 1124th Overall: Joshua Pettitte, RHP, Deer Park HS (TX), Bats: Right, Throws: Right, 6-foot-1, 190-pounds
Josh Pettitte had a 11-0 record with a 0.65 ERA and 105 strikeouts in 79 innings this season. His velocity improved from 83 mph as a junior to 90 mph as a senior. It doesn’t sound like the Yankees are going to sign the son of Andy Pettitte though as he has a scholarship to Baylor.
“To be honest, I don’t have a number (money or draft round) in mind,” he said. “I’m open to everything. If I end up in the top 10 rounds, it will be a huge honor and we’ll make a decision from there. Either way it’s an exciting time.”
