Round 15 (#458 overall)

RHP LUKE EUBANK

AGE/DOB: 20, Feb 24, 1994                                            College: Oxnard College (CA)

BATS/THROWS: R/R                                           HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6-0/180                               Signed 6/20

From MLB.com on Eubank

Eubank has moved around a bit, going from the California high school ranks in 2012 to Western Nevada College in 2013, then on to Oxnard Community College for this season. The right-hander didn't get drafted in '12 or '13, but he should avoid a three-year streak in June. Using a low three-quarter slot much like current Angels reliever Joe Smith, Eubank relies on his fastball-slider combination. He'll touch 93-94 mph with plenty of sink from that slightly unorthodox arm angle. His slider is very effective, thrown in the low-80s. Eubank has a changeup, though it's behind the other two pitches. He's generally around the strike zone, though whether his command is enough to remain a starter remains to be seen. Unlike Smith, Eubank has started at the collegiate level, but many teams do see him following in Smith's footsteps as a big league reliever.
