On Monday, the Yankees picked Eric Reyzelman, a 6-foot-2, 188-pound pitcher out of LSU, in the 5th round of the 2022 MLB Draft.

It was pick number 160, with a slot price of $340,500.

Reyzelman was ranked as the 323rd best player in the draft by Baseball America. Here’s an excerpt from the scouting report on him:

He’s a one-pitch pitcher who challenges batters to hit his 90+ fastball that reaches 99 mph. This year, he threw it 94% of the time. Even though hitters knew it was coming, they had a 39% swing-and-miss rate. … At some point in pro ball, he’ll need to find a second pitch…

ROUND 6: Chase Hampton, righty pitcher, Texas Tech, pick No. 190, slot value $263,800

ROUND 7: Cam Schlittler, righty pitcher, Northeastern, pick No. 220, slot value $207,300

ROUND 8: Brett Barrerra, Stanford shortstop, pick No. 250, slot value $172,200

ROUND 9: Matt Keating, righty pitcher, USC, pick No. 280, slot value $157,900

ROUND 10: Will Brian, the lefty pitcher from Eastern Kentucky, pick No. 310, slot value $149,700
