(#31) Drew Rom, LHP
Ceiling: 45 Risk: Extreme ETA: 2023 Role Description: Swingman
Ht/Wt: 6’2” / 170 lbs. B/T: L/L Highest Level: R Age (as of April 1, 2019): 19y, 3m
A former Michigan commit and favorite of a number of midwest evaluators, Rom elected to forgo college and sign with Baltimore last summer after being selected in the fourth round of the MLB First Year Player Draft. After seeing a nice progression in velocity over the course of the calendar year leading up to last June’s draft, Rom so his velo slip some in pro ball before bouncing back in the fall. The southpaw generally works in the upper 80s into the low 90s with an easy arm and plenty of room to project a few more ticks as he continues to mature. His best secondary is a quality two-plane hard curve (some categorize it as a deep slider) with plus potential and he also flashes advanced feel for a low-80s changeup with good arm-side fade. Rom is a developmental pick, but one with good upside and a lot of encouraging indicators from pitch potential to command profile. Once he adds enough strength to shoulder a starter’s workload in pro ball he could move quickly.

Drew Rom struck out 8 batters in just 3.2 innings in his full season debut. FB 86-91, command and feel for his offspeed and breaking pitches are quite advanced for a teenager. Here’s a look at a curveball and his best changeup of the day. #Orioles

19 years old this whole year. He is starting to put himself on the radar as a real prospect.

Stotle was all over this guy pre-draft last year.

Drew Rom is a very polished Lefty. Fastball 89-92 a few with cut. He seemingly has 2 sliders, 1 with moderate movement that's he's landed in the zone a 1/2 dozen times and one with terrific bite that he's thrown twice. Also a mid 80's change with sink. Pounds the zone
