2016

2015

A first-round pick by the Angels in the 2014 draft, Newcomb has begun a quick ascension through the minor leagues, as he threw just three innings in rookie ball before being promoted to Low-A Burlington. While he did not perform well overall in his first taste of professional baseball, he did feature impressive punchout rates, tallying 18 strikeouts in 14.2 innings in time split between the two levels. Newcomb is considered a high-ceiling prospect, as he has a repertoire that consists of four pitches, including a mid-90s fastball and a curveball, which could develop into a plus offering. The 21-year-old has had some control issues, and will likely benefit from a tweak to his mechanics, but was able to lower his walk rate from 4.6 BB/9 in 2013 to 3.7 BB/9 during his final season at the University of Hartford.
