The New York Yankees selected Bo Weiss in the 29th round of the 2016 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. Bo is the son of the Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss. The Regis Jesuit High School (Colorado) senior is committed to play at the University of North Carolina next season should he elect not to sign.
Evaluators have said the projectable right handed pitcher is a top 5 round talent but will fall to the later rounds due to his UNC commitment. Weiss has a good body coupled with a very smooth delivery. His fastball has touched 94 miles per hour and his change up is a very good secondary offering. His breaking ball is currently inconsistent, but flashes potential due to a tight rotation.
In 2016, Weiss pitched to a 3.91 ERA with a whopping 61 strikeouts in 43.1 innings pitched.
