2016

After being taken with the 18th pick in the 2015 MLB Draft, Bickford went to the Arizona League and posted a 2.01 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 22.1 innings. While it was a small sample, the 6-foot-5 righty exhibited the power and high-end strikeout ability that had scouts pegging him as a first-round talent. He possesses a plus fastball to go along with an average slider and changeup, but what makes him such an intriguing prospect is his combination of velocity with plus control. Looking ahead, Bickford will likely start the year in the lower levels, and is probably at least three years away from the big leagues. He should be a secondary target for those in dynasty leagues, as he does not have quite as high of a ceiling as some of the arms that went ahead of him last year's draft.
