251. Dawson Netz, rhp, Maranatha HS
R-R, 6-1/185, Sierra Madre, Calif.
College Commitment: Arizona

A PG All-American last summer, Netz was one of the premier high school righthanders on the summer circuit heading into this spring. He has a fairly simple delivery with a quick arm and four pitches that he can throw for strikes. Netz has been operating more in the 88-92 mph range this spring but still has good pitchability on the mound even if there are a few aspects stuff-wise that could be ironed out.

252. Ryan Anderson, lhp, Nevada (JR)
L-L, 6-6/205, Sparks, Nev.
Previously Drafted: Never Drafted

Anderson jumped onto the prospect radar after a loud showing in the Northwoods League last summer, where, as a 6-foot-6, insanely-projectable lefthander, he ran his fastball up to 94 mph and showed both excellent angle to the plate as well as an idea of spinning the ball. He was a full-time starter for the first time in his career in 2019, with middling success to the tune of a 4.66 ERA across 67 2/3 innings, with a 3.72 BB/9 and 8.25 K/9. There are some starter traits to the profile, but most scouts do seem to prefer him in the bullpen long-term.

253. Bobby Zmarzlak, of, Westhill HS
R-R, 6-5/205, Stamford, CT.
College Commitment: Maryland

Athletic outfielders who are listed at 6-foot-5 and have high-level tools across the board from the Northeast don’t often pop until they make it to campus, though Zmarzlak isn’t your typical outfielder. He’s a plus runner with 6.5 speed that he put on display at the National Showcase last June where he also showed plus raw power from the right side. There’s no mistaking Zmarlzak’s athleticism which helps project him to play right field at the next level when taking his arm strength into account, and should he make it to Maryland’s campus he could truly blossom in three years of college.

254. Randon Hostert, rhp, Bonneville HS
R-R, 6-5/185, Idaho Falls, Idaho
College Commitment: Utah

One of the darlings of last summer’s Area Code Games, Hostert showed out as a highly-projectable righthander with a fast arm who ran his fastball up to 93 mph with excellent life, a solid breaking ball and feel for his changeup. He’s had some inconsistencies this spring as far as command, velocity and overall quality of stuff, but he’s still flashed the considerable upside and projection that got him on the map in the first place. He’ll be an interesting follow for sure, whether he signs this summer or after three years at Utah, where he’s committed to play in college.

255. Sean Mooney, rhp, St. John’s (JR)
R-R, 6-1/200, Marmora, N.J.
Previously Drafted: Never Drafted

It’s not often you come across a pitcher from the collegiate ranks with the track record of success Mooney has, winning the Big East Pitcher and Freshman of the Year in 2017. His 2019 season was cut short as he ultimately needed Tommy John surgery, but during his three years in Queens he went 21-6 with a 2.13 career ERA over 244 2/3 innings in which he struck out 249 and walked just 72. His model of consistency and ability to compete while pounding the strike zone are well noted among scouts, as is his ability to maintain a fastball into the low-90s and spot either his changeup or curveball for strikes regardless of the count.
