Looking at the 2015 Draft: 12th Best Prospect

Continuing our look at the 2015 MLB First Year Players Draft we take a look at the #12 ranked prospect expected to enter the draft. As always we will include the mini scouting report from MLB.com as we introduce the #12 prospect, Carson Fulmer. Fulmer is a Junior and a RHP from Vanderbilt University. 

Here is the write up from MLB.com:

Scouting grades: Fastball: 70 | Curveball: 60 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 55

Fulmer helped key Vanderbilt's run to its first College World Series title when he moved from closer to starter last April, not allowing a run in his first 29 2/3 innings in his new role. He spent the summer with the U.S. collegiate national team, leading the pitching staff in wins (three), ERA (0.73) and opponent average (.141).

Fulmer has an electric arm that delivers 93-97-mph fastballs and power breaking balls. His changeup is an effective third pitch and coaches and scouts alike rave about his competitive makeup. Some scouts think he'd be best off channeling his energy into becoming a closer because he lacks size, his delivery features effort and his control can get wobbly at times.

A 15th-round pick by the Red Sox from a Florida high school in 2012, Fulmer would have gone in the top five rounds had he been signable. Now he's one of three Commodores who figure to go early in the first round in 2015, joining Walker Buehler and Dansby Swanson.
