Baseball Rebellion Breakdown

JB Bukauskas

Baseball Rebellion breaks down JB Bukauskas, one of the top pitching prospects in the 2017 MLB draft. He is a big physical kid from Ashburn, Virginia and attends the University of North Carolina. Bukauskas regularly throws in the mid-90’s fastball and has hit 100 mph. His freshman year, Bukauskas led the Tar Heels with 14 games started and was part of the weekend rotation and had a 5-3 record. JB had pretty similar numbers his Sophomore year but dropped his ERA to 3.10 and 111 strikeouts. Thus far his 2017 stats are outstanding with a perfect 5-0 record with a 1.41 ERA. Despite is great numbers, I feel he has a few Red Flags when it comes to mechanics. Bukauskas regularly throws in the mid-90’s fastball and has hit 100 mph. Baseball Rebellion wishes JB well this year and the upcoming draft. Thank you and enjoy the breakdown.
