June 9, 2014
The Padres have selected Watrous with the 237th overall pick in the 2014 first-year player draft.
Previously a shortstop, Watrous followed up an impressive sophomore campaign at Utah (2.81 ERA and 64 strikeouts in 93 innings) with a 3.91 ERA and 76 punchouts in 96.2 innings this year. Additionally, he improved his batting average against in each of his three collegiate seasons (.290 to .270 to .250). At 6-feet and 205 pounds, the right-hander brings along a plus fastball, fair change-up, and slider that has the potential to be solid.
