Daily Draft Video: Garrett Williams

by Nick J. Faleris

Oklahoma State University commit Garrett Williams (lhp) (Calvary Baptist HS, Shreveport, LA) saw his stock climb this summer and currently projects as a potential top 100 pick in the upcoming MLB Draft. Today we feature two videos of Williams. The first is from June's Perfect Game National Showcase at the Metrodome. The second is Williams with Team USA during the second annual Prospect Classic, which pits the Collegiate National Team against the 18U Team.

Not sure why we're looking at this guy. Doesn't throw hard, can't throw to 1b, has a pencil-neck, etc. etc...

Projection, athleticism, good feel for two secondaries, solid shape on breaking ball, current "average" velocity on fastball with multiple looks, room for growth in pitches and mechanics that should make average or better command a real possibility. We're going to have lots of videos to show you as many quality draft prospects as possible -- not everyone is going to currently project to a top 10 pick.

How do you feel about the speed of his windup? How is his command/control?

It's a nice starting point with which a developmental staff will be able to work. He repeats pretty well, but could stand to slow things down some at times -- his lower half can get ahead of his upper body too quickly, causing him to fail to finish and push the ball up and out.

Overall, I have no major issue with it, and he's athletic enough that I like the odds of him being able to make adjustments as needed. His control is already solid, and command should come with more consistency.
