June 5, 2014
The Angels have selected Gatto with the 53rd overall pick in the 2014 first-year player draft.
The first player ever drafted out of St. Augustine Prep HS (N.J.), Gatto is a 6-foot-5 right-hander who gets on top on hitters in a hurry with a sinking fastball that sits in the low-90s. He currently tops out at around 94 mph, but he may be able to get up there consistently once he matures, and he throws a quality, if inconsistent, curveball. It's no lock that Gatto's changeup will ever become a viable offering, but he certainly fits the mold of a major league starter.

2015 Fantasy Outlook
The 53rd overall selection in the 2014 draft, Gatto is a 6-foot-4, 215-pound three-sport athlete out of St. Augustine Prep (New Jersey), who can reach 95 miles per hour with his fastball. The 19-year-old can have trouble locating his secondary pitches at times (a curveball and a changeup), and while Angels scouting director Ric Wilson called Gatto "unpolished," he also noted that he likes the right-hander's ability to "throw the ball down hill." Gatto finished his final season of high school ball in dominating fashion, notching a 0.94 ERA with 65 strikeouts in 52.1 innings as a senior, but has not yet found success in professional baseball, as he tallied just a 5.33 ERA in time split between the Orem Owlz and Arizona Angels in 2014. He'll likely progress to a full-season affiliate at some point in 2015.
