Drafted in the 12th round (349th overall) by the Kansas City Royals in 2019 (signed for $125,000)
Lukas is one of the hardest throwers in the draft class with a fastball that touches 97-99 mph and sits 94-96 regularly as a starter. He gets to that velocity reasonably easily and already sports a pro body at 6-foot-4, 230 pounds. But Lukas’ results don’t come close to matching his stuff. He one-hit Creighton for seven innings, striking out 12, but he tailed off badly as the season wore on. He didn’t make it out of the fourth inning in any of his final four starts as his ERA ballooned to 5.21. Lukas throws a mid-80s slider that is erratic. Sometimes it has some depth and bite, but other times it looks more like a cutter. Lukas also has below-average control, evidenced by his 5.3 walks per nine innings.
