Name: Caleb Clay
Draft: 1st round, '06
Projected '07 team: Lowell (A-)
You can't get more raw than Caleb Clay. At just 18-years-old, Clay was drafted in the first round last year and has yet to throw a pitch in the Red Sox organization.
Clay had a strong year pitching in Alabama, notching 86 innings and 112 strikeouts. His ERA at the end of the season was a mere 1.29.
A little more on what he's packing in the arm:
"The fastball took a major jump over last season," said Cullman coach Bryan Bowen. "His fastball went from 88-to-94 miles per hour. He has worked extremely hard in the weight room and on the bands. His throwing schedule that he created for himself really helped him become dominant."
As of now, Clay's three stronghold pitches are the fastball, curveball and slider. But according to Matthews, he has the potential to have a four pitch repertoire at the next level.
"He has a great fastball and commanded his secondary stuff," Matthews said. "He could develop into a complete pitcher with good stuff and has a shot to end up in the majors one day."
