The Pittsburgh Pirates have drafted right-handed pitcher Dylan Prohoroff out of Cal St Fullerton in the eighth round of the 2016 draft. He is 6’3″, 215 pounds, and turned 21 back in November. Jonathan Mayo described him as a big arm, with a big slider and poor command. He was ranked #76 in California by Baseball America, five spots behind Blake Cederlind, who the Pirates took in the fifth round.
This season at Cal State Fullerton, he pitched 26.1 innings over 20 relief appearances. He had an 0.68 ERA, with five walks and 30 strikeouts. He previously pitched as a starter at Fullerton College (Juco) where he had a 2.16 ERA and 90 strikeouts in 108.1 innings.
D1 Baseball had a report on him last month, saying that he was getting serious draft buzz due to a fastball that sits 92-94, hitting 95 MPH. He mixed it with a good slider. He has some effort to his delivery, but some better command of the fastball/slider combo could get him to the majors as a reliever.
