Brown could make history as the first Minnesota prep pitcher ever drafted before the second round. He looked like a first-rounder in his opening start of 2012, when he didn't throw a fastball under 90 mph and threw several at 94. He backed it up with an 87-88 mph cutter/slider and a curveball that both projected as plus pitches, and showed aptitude for a changeup that could become an average offering. Brown hasn't quite lived up to that standard in his subsequent outings, but he continues to display advanced feel for his four-pitch repertoire. Scouts gush about his focus and discipline as well. The son of a Korean powerlifter, he has a strong 6-foot-2, 210-pound build. There's some crossfire to his delivery, but it adds deception rather than detracts from his command. Brown has a scholarship from the University of San Diego that likely will become moot if he's selected in the first two rounds.
