There's an abundance of undersized righthanders with good stuff this year. While Marcus Stroman is in a class of his own and Eckels isn't quite in the same class as Justin Garza or Zach Quintana. His fastball sits in the 90-92 mph range and touches 94 and he mixes in an above-average curveball and a changeup that projects as an average pitch. On top of that, Eckles is viewed as a bulldog of a competitor. The knock is just his size, as scouts say that if Eckels were 6-foot-3, he'd be a top pick, but he's three or four inches shorter and weighs 175 pounds. Eckels could get bumped up by a few rounds for a team that isn't concerned about his size because he is considered signable and is committed to Howard (Texas) JC.
