THT: The Workloads of the Top College Pitchers in the 2018 Draft

For The Hardball Times today, I took my annual look at the workloads of the top college pitchers available in tonight’s draft. The evaluation considered both pitch counts and rest stints, and featured a more rigorous process to estimate missing pitch counts.

The standout workload belongs to Logan Gilbert, the Stetson ace who threw at least 122 pitches in three of his 14 regular-season starts this year. Even with the heavy use, the righty has a lot going for him as a pitcher and was selected by the Mariners with the 14th overall pick tonight.
