2015

A third-round pick by the Angels in the 2014 amateur draft, Ellis had his first crack at rookie ball in 2014, and did not fare well, allowing 12 earned runs and giving up eight walks in 15.2 innings. While such a small sample size on a young arm is likely indicative of nothing by itself, Ellis has been known to be erratic with his command, as he posted a 3.3 BB/9 in 169 innings at Ole Miss. Ellis has a low-to-mid-90s fastball to go with a promising curveball and changeup, but he has trouble controlling the bender at times. The 22-year-old capped off his collegiate career with a flourish, posting a 2.55 ERA in 19 games (18 starts) in 2014. While he's certainly a work in progress, Ellis could potentially develop two plus secondary pitches, which would aid in his ascent through the minor leagues.
