Kodi Medeiros is different, which is not something that makes scouts comfortable.

He’s not different physically, except that his arms seem a bit long for his 6-foot, 185-pound frame. Being from Hawaii is a bit unusual, but it’s not like he makes his home in Alaska or rural Vermont. That he’s thrown only eight total innings at national level events in his career doesn’t separate him and is actually more than some recent first round picks. He comes from a normal, hard working two-parent family.

What makes Medeiros different is the way that he throws a baseball and what the baseball does after it leaves his hand.
