2021 Helium Candidates

Nathan Rode and Shooter Hunt

The 2021 Overall Rankings were updated last week and several prospects made big jumps, showing their offseason gains so far this spring. The draft is in July and a few regions still haven’t started, leaving plenty of time and opportunity for others to boost their stock. Who might that be? We offer a few possibilities...

Pete Heubeck, RHP, Gilman School, MD
As an underclassmen, Heubeck established himself as a clear arm to follow for the 2021 MLB Draft. He was touching 92-94 two years ago, working with a loose arm and easy effort while also showing the ability to spin a tight breaking ball. Like everybody else, he saw limited action in 2020, but was also slowed by injury. Maryland is just getting started with the spring season and Heubeck sat 91-93 with 2500-2600 rpm in one of his first outings. He also continued to show his sharp breaking ball, as well as excellent feel for a changeup at 82-85. As things warm up and he rounds into midseason form, the Wake Forest recruit could find himself among the top righties in the country.
