Yanks see upside with Coshow in 13th round

Cale Coshow might be a project for the Yankees, but the 13th-round pick could eventually turn out to be a tremendous value pick.

The Oklahoma Christian product has a plus fastball that he can run up to 96 mph and also throws a curveball and a changeup, both of which could be average or better in the future.

He does have weight problems, however, and lacks command of his pitches. Coshow was a top recruit coming out of high school and still has considerable upside, but the Yankees will likely have to smooth out his command issues for him to be successful.

Coshow started his college career at Oklahoma, but transferred to Oklahoma Christian after being used sparingly with the Sooners. He became the staff ace at Oklahoma Christian and compiled a 3-5 record and a 4.56 ERA this season.
