Like Lance McCullers earlier in the week, I've been making my rounds back to check out draft prospects I saw early on and Orlando area Hagerty High School righty Zach Eflin was next on my list.

Eflin is 23rd on Keith Law's latest Future 50 and his draft stock was confirmed by the roughly 50 scouts in attendance with plenty of crosscheckers, VP's and directors in the house.

As I've written before, Eflin brings a lot of positives to the table. He has a simple, smooth delivery with a clean arm action from a high three-quarters slot and a projectable 6-foot-5, 200-pound frame with plenty of room for added development. He has been up to 95 mph in the past and in this outing sat 89-93 mph much of the way. Eflin's go-to weapon is a 79-82 mph plus changeup that turns over with fade, sink and outstanding deception that had hitters fooled all night.
