With their fourth pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, the Angels selected Kyle McGowin, a right handed college pitcher who projects as a reliever.

Skinny for his age and size, he is 6'3" and weighs 170 lbs. This righty has a 95 MPH fastball that wowed the scouts despite getting banged around in NCAA competition. McGowin hails from Sag Harbor NY and was born in November of 1991. This means that the first four picks of this draft are all pitchers younger than Mike Trout.

The Angels appear to be going slightly underslot on their second, third and fourth picks, perhaps to save money to help sign their first pick, second-rounder Hunter Green or perhaps just to save money.

On his player page, McGowin lists hanging at the beach to be one of his hobbies he probably has to love getting picked by the Newport Beach-adjacent Angels, one could figure here.
