Conner Kendrick is far from a power pitcher, but his deceiving delivery could help him prove to be a value pick for the Yankees in the ninth round of the First-Year Player Draft.
Kendrick throws his fastball in the upper 80s with good movement. He commands his changeup and curveball well, and both have the potential to be Major League-average offerings.
The deception in his delivery helps offset a slower fastball than the average professional, which helps his stuff play up. He earns praise for his poise and aggressiveness on the mound.
