Royals sign 3rd Round pick Bryan Brickhouse

MLB has announced the signing of 3rd round pick Bryan Brickhouse from The Woodlands HS in Texas.  Brickhouse who many considered to be a difficult sign decidedto start his pro career as opposed to signing with college powerhouse North Carolina who he had a commitment with.

Background – Texas knows their pitching prospects and The Woodlands, Bryan’s high school has put out a couple highly touted righthand pitchers recently in Jameson Taillon (2010 2nd overall pick) and Kyle Drabek the Blue Jays top pitching prospect.

The Now- Bryan signed for $1.5 million which is comparable to what the Dodgers gave their 16th overall pick Chris Reed.

Scouting Report – Brickhouse runs his fastball up there in the low to mid 90s range touching 95 but as a young pitcher can struggle with maintaining the control and repeating his delivery.¬† He also throws a spike curveball that when he doesn’t get on top of it looks more like a slider at times.¬† Bryan is still learning how to throw his changeup. ¬†At 6’3

Future: While it is way too early to tell many believe his ceiling is that of a #3 starter.

Typically Top 5 rounders in the Royals org will join full season midwest league ball the year after being drafted once the weather warms up.  I hope to get more info on Bryan during instructs or spring training for you.

About The Author

Clint Scoles

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that. I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.

    @ 1.5 I guess that makes him our #1 pitching prospect in the lower ranks w/ Jason Adam being #2….
