The Hotlist: Super 60 Participants With Improved Draft Stock

By Nathan Rode

The Super 60 is an unofficial kickoff to the season and the level of talent brings in dozens of scouts from major league teams as they prepare for their spring travel. This week’s Hotlist looks back at Sunday’s event and highlights 10 players that helped their draft stock and should be followed closely throughout the next four months.

Noah Burkholder, RHP, Crown Point HS, IN
On the surface, Burkholder may have not seemed like one of the top pitchers at the event, but put his performance into context and it definitely stands out. Injured for much of 2014, Burkholder is finally healthy and easing into the spring season. He was pitching at 85-90 percent and kept it to his fastball and changeup, leaving the curveball for a little more down the road. Every fastball he threw was 88 mph, except for the last one when he capped off the day with 93. He showed good feel for a changeup, turning it over at 77-78. Burkholder has an easy, athletic delivery and an excellent pitcher’s frame at 6-foot-6, 205 pounds. He is committed to Louisville.
