First-Year Player Draft

Pinstriped Profile: Nate Brown

Height: 6 – 2

Weight: 185

Bats: R

Throws: R

Age: 18 (1/15/98)

The New York Yankees selected Nate Brown in the 40th round of the 2016 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. The Arrowhead Union High School product will play at the University of Florida next season, should he elect to not sign a professional contract with the Yankees.

Evaluators have said that the raw, right handed pitcher shows some projectability as a future starting pitcher in professional baseball. Brown features a four pitch repertoire. His fastball sits in the upper 80’s and touches 92. He also possesses a change up, slider and curveball. The low 80’s slider is his second best offering.
