The Top Three Arms of the 2014 Draft

The 2014 amateur draft begins tonight at 6pm ET tonight — and, while there’s some uncertainty regarding the specific order in which they’ll be selected, there’s less mystery about which pitchers are the draft’s best.

To better acquaint the reader with those pitchers, below are images of their respective arms, accompanied by analysis of same.

Brady Aiken, LHP, Cathedral Catholic HS (Calif.)
This arm is positioned a little bit behind the pitcher’s body.

Carlos Rodon, LHP, North Carolina State
This one extends diagonally a lot from the bottom and left to the top and right.

Tyler Kolek, RHP, Shepherd HS (Texas)

I’m seeing the potential for shoulder issues. You know, given the lack thereof.

I like the shape of the hand on #1. Gimme that one.

I wonder if certain grips on the curve increase the chances of arm injury.

Or increases the chance they end up throwing like Tebow.

Hay Seattle, Gallop Poll time! Who do think is more likely to win a Triple Crown this year?

This is horrible. All I can see is three UCL’s under crosshairs. Damn you, 2014, you have taken the joy out of all things.
