Interview with 7th Round Pick Austin Kubitza

SCOUTING REPORT
Like first round pick Jameson Taillon, Kubitza has a commitment to Rice University.  Kubitza was the #153 overall prospect by Baseball America.  He’s got a projectable frame, and good body control.  He throws an 88-91 MPH fastball that tops out at 93, and has sink.  He has one of the best sliders of the high school draft crop, which should give him two plus pitches once he fills out and adds velocity.  He might be a tough guy to sign away from Rice.
