Previous winner

LHP Ian Seymour (6’0 210, 22 in 2021)

Drafted in 2020

Seymour was comically good for Virginia Tech before the pandemic shut the season down. He struck out more than half the batters he faced in 20 1⁄3 innings, even though he doesn’t have dominant stuff. His fastball is average, but his changeup is potentially plus. His slider needs improvement. He also showed growth in his walk rate throughout his collegiate career.
