Mike Ferguson (@noled_out) editor of Noled Out kindly sent us a scouting report on 14th round pick Boomer Biegalski:

Should be choose to sign, the Oakland Athletics are getting a very dependable starting pitcher in Boomer Biegalski.

Biegalski is a three-pitch pitcher with the ability to throw his fastball, slider and changeup for strikes. Biegalski will occasionally mix in a curve ball. In 2015 -- his only season at Florida State -- Biegalski posted a 7-5 record and a solid 3.17 ERA.

Biegalski's stays in the strike zone and has a fastball that tops out in the high 80s or low 90s, but doesn't necessarily pitch to contact. In 108 innings this past season, Biegalski led the Seminoles with 120 strikeouts while posting better than a 3:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio and holding opponents to a .210 average.

Down the stretch of the season, Biegalski was Florida State's unquestioned ace. He was named MVP of the ACC Tournament in Durham, throwing 11 scoreless innings and earning a pair of wins in two appearances as the Seminoles claimed their first conference crown since 2010.

Biegalski ran his scoreless streak to 18 2/3 innings before allowing a 2-run home run to Carl Wise in a 3-2 victory over College of Charleston on May 30th. The propensity to allow the long ball is perhaps the biggest knock on Biegalski as he gave up 12 home runs this past season -- six more than the next closest Seminole.

8th round pick Nick Collins was the Big East player of the year this year. From Georgetown's site:

Collins is among the top 10 in the BIG EAST in nine offensive categories. He ranks first in hits (75), home runs (7), slugging percentage (.547) and total bases (111) while coming in second in batting average (.369) and third in on-base percentage (.437). He is also fifth in the BIG EAST in RBI (36), tied for fifth in doubles (15) and 10th in runs scored (33). Nationally, Collins' .369 batting average ranks him 40th in all of Division I and his 75 base hits tie him for 57th.

There's a video on 32nd round pick, Michael Murray. Probably won't sign since he's a junior and has a video which means he must be higher ranked than this.
