Cole Percival, rhp, UC Riverside (R-So.)
Coming off a lost year to injury, Percival looks healthy and figures to anchor the UCR rotation as the Friday starter. Listed at 6-foot-5, 220-pounds, Percival has added a bit of mass since high school and still has some room to add weight. The son of former long-time Angels closer, and UCR head coach, Troy Percival, Cole has some similarities in the delivery and profile. With a big leg kick, Percival generates pretty easy velocity, working at 91-94 and touching 95 mph in two looks this fall. He’s shown feel for both secondaries, a 78-80 mph slider that gets swings and misses and an 80-83 mph change with sink and fade. Percival is one of the top college arms in So Cal for the 2020 draft.
