Focus Area
Fastball:Gould throws his fastball up to 94 mph, a jump from what he'd been throwing in past years.
Curve:It's a plus pitch, one of the best curves in the draft.
Changeup:Has a good feel for a changeup, though he doesn't need it much at this level.
Control:Shows decent command for a high schooler.
Poise:He's a good competitor on the mound.
Physical Description:Gould is a tall, lean and projectable athlete who has played three sports in high school in the past.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:The plus curve ball, good athleticism, projectable body.
Weaknesses:There are some issues with his delivery and mechanics.
Summary:Gould had a ton of helium as the spring wore on and his high school season in Kansas came to an end. He's got one of the best curveballs in the draft class and saw his velocity climb in his senior season, as well. Add in a projectable body and excellent athleticism, and it seems extremely possible that some teams would not worry about some effort in his delivery and could take him at some point in the opening round.
