Here's some stuff on a few of the other pitchers. Bratt: "Bratt operates with an athletic delivery and starter’s repertoire of a three-pitch mix. Has loose and quick tempo actions with delivery out of a three-quarter slot and the ability to throw strikes with his entire arsenal. His fastball works to both sides and will pitch up in zone. Attacks early with it in the 88-90 mph range while flashing some 91s. Spins the ball well and curveball will act as a putaway pitch while the changeup is still developing but will use in game and throw with confidence." https://www.prepbaseballreport.com/news/PBRDraft-League-Spotlight-Mitch-Bratt-0457192386 Kindreich: "Larson Kindreich, LHP, Biola: Kindreich is a big lefty, checking in at 6’4 and 210 pounds. He was impressive in the shortened 2020 season, not allowing a run in 30 innings. That shot him up the prospect board, but 2021 did come with its highs and lows: he can strike people out, but he does lose his command at times. Kindreich has a nice three-pitch mix with a low-90s fastball, a changeup that touches 81 and a slider that sits in the high-70s. He tossed just six innings in the Cape Cod Baseball League this summer, striking out eight and walking four." 2021 Atlanta Braves MLB draft preview: DII baseball players to watch Lee: "He began his Crimson Tide career as a walk-on who didn't make the team. Coach Brad Bohannon gave him the advice to become a sidearm pitcher if he wanted to join Alabama's team down the road. Lee then started by playing for the UA club team in 2018. He improved and became a reliable reliever for the Crimson Tide. Lee made 22 relief appearances for the Crimson Tide, which reached their first NCAA tournament since 2014. He finished 7-0 with seven saves, tied for sixth in the SEC. He also had a 1.33 ERA, leading Alabama relievers with 51 strikeouts. He received recognition as third-team All-America by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association in 2021." Texas Rangers pick Alabama baseball's Chase Lee in sixth round of 2021 MLB draft Webb: Webb is something of a mystery man, as there is very little in the way of scouting reports, etc. on him. "The right-hander excelled in college at keeping hitters in the ballpark. In 119 1/3 career innings at both Hampden-Sydney College and VCU, Webb only allowed seven home runs (0.53 home runs per nine innings). Webb also cut his free passes in his last two years in college, allowing just 2.11 walks per nine innings." Rangers' Day 2 crop led by Ducks OF Zavala Ure: "Ure looks the part of a future weekend starter with a long, athletic frame and the ability to run a fastball into the low-90s, with more on the way. He counters that with feel for a solid breaking ball and changeup, and could develop into an elite arm over time. Ure pounds the zone with his fastball, and his arm action and lower half sync up efficiently, at a low effort, especially for a player of his size and stature."
