Mutz has one of the most interesting back stories of any player in the top 10 rounds. He left NAIA Dakota State last season and did not pitch for anyone this spring. The Angels received a tip on him, however, and brought him into a predraft workout. Mutz threw a 20-25 pitch bullpen session and that's all the Halos needed to see to pop the 6-foot-1, 190-pound righthander in the ninth round. Mutz showed an easy 94-95 mph fastball with life down in the zone and good angle for his size. Mutz also showed flashes of an above-average cutter. Mutz has a short arm stroke, almost like a catcher, but exceptional hand speed and deception. The Angels will follow Mutz's progress this summer in the Cape Cod League and, if he signs, will start him out as a reliever to ease him back into pitching, but he could start later on in his career.
