Orioles Select Pat Connaughton in 4th Round (121st Overall)

The Orioles have selected RHP Pat Cannaughtan in the 4th Round (121st Overall).

I saw Cannaughtan against Maryland this year, and he was touching low 90’s; long arms; good extension and plane; FB has some mild life to it; CH and CB were fringe to me, but I could see some improvement as the game went along. His mechanics are a little goofy, it didn’t take much for him to lose balance; inconsistent arm slot at times.

Pat Connaughton is also a basketball player, and this could affect his signability.
