...sliding down the draft order... - Scott Halleran

Talk About the Draft Here

The Angels started Day 2 of the MLB draft with more pitching.

After taking collegiate LHP Sean Newcomb in the first round and high school RHP Joe Gatto in the second round, the began day two by drafting three more pitchers:

Round 3: Chris Ellis, RHP out of Ole Miss (a college in the state of Mississippi).

MLB.com has background on Ellis:

he has been more consistent than ever as the Rebels' No. 1 starter in 2014. A 50th-round pick out of an Alabama high school by the Dodgers in 2011, Ellis has the makings of three average or better big league pitches.

Round 4: Jeremy Rhoades, RHP from Illinois State.

MLB.com had this to say about Rhoades...

He faded a little bit toward the end of the regular season, though that wasn't a major concern because he profiles as a reliever in pro ball. Rhoades' best pitch is a legitimate swing-and-miss slider that can sit in the mid-80s and features late tilt. He commands it better than his fastball, which usually operates at 90-92 mph and tops out at 94.

Round 5: Jake Jewell, RHP who pitched for Northeastern Oklahoma A&M a junior college.

Jewell got scouted by MLB.com and they had this to say...

Jewell struggled as a freshman starter at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M in 2013 before finding his niche as a closer this spring. Jewell has a mid-90s fastball that tops out at 97 mph, and his heater has good life when he doesn't overthrow it.
