1. Kumar Rocker – RHP
2021 Draft Top-200
Age: 20 yr
Weight: 255 lbs
Height: 6-4
Hits/Throws: R/R
Hometown: Athens, GA
School: Vanderbilt
The most famous player in college baseball, Rocker has made his mark in a short period of time. He works with a three-pitch mix consisting of a four-seam fastball in the 92-95 range that’s touched 99 with two distinctly different breaking balls as secondaries in his plus slider and a projectable 12-6 curveball. Rocker has the body, stuff, and pedigree teams covet. The slider might be the best pitch in the draft. The biggest question mark on Rocker will be his ability to continue limiting at-bats and walks. The fastball command can waver when he’s not on, leading to traffic on the bases. If the fastball command holds or improves in 2021, Rocker has a very good chance of going 1.1
