Footage of Texas Rangers pitching prospect Cody Buckel. Selected out of Royal High School (Simi Valley, California) in the second round (with the 72nd overall pick) of the 2011 MLB Draft, nineteen year-old Buckel has been rated as one of the top pitching prospects in professional baseball by BaseballNewsHound.com, Baseball America and Baseball Prospectus.
Playing for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, Buckel pitches against the Potomac Nationals on April 29th, 2012. He faces off against a potent lineup that includes top hitting prospects Michael Taylor, David Freitas, Blake Kelso, Zach Walters and Kevin Keyes. Buckel's nasty running fastball reached 94 MPH and his changeup, cutter and curveball looked particularly sharp. A close friend of Trevor Bauer, Buckel's pitching style is similar to that of the D'Backs' phenom.
