Potential #1 Overall MLB Draft Pick, Jason Groom, Ruled Ineligble

Groome has been named the #1 overall draft prospect by many news sources and for good reason. He stands 6’5, weighing 220 pounds, and throws absolute heat from the left side. He has been clocked at 97 MPH and has a curveball that look absolutely devastating. He also mixes in a very advanced change up for his age. He has a great feel for both sides of the plate and locates his elite pitches better than anyone his age. He has a chance to harness three plus pitches and be a front of the rotation starter once his body matures. Once his body matures more, he should only get better. Unfortunately, this debacle of a situation leaves people wondering if Groome’s draft stock is affected by his ineligibility. It is a tough situation for Groome, but considering all teams know what Groome is capable of, it shouldn’t hurt his draft stock too much. It is still too early to determine if he will be the first overall pick, but as of right now, all signs point to Groome as the top choice.
