MLB Draft 2012: Diamondbacks Select SS Jose Munoz, RHP Jake Barrett

With the 90th overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft, the Arizona Diamondbacks selected Jose Munoz, a shortstop out of Los Altos HS, California. Scouting video, courtesy of, found here.

With the 120th overall pick, the D-Backs went with 6'4, 220 lb RHP Jake Barrett. Per's scouting report, "The Blue Jays made a run at signing the big right-hander when he was an Arizona high school product, but he headed to ASU instead. Three years later, he's emerging as one of the hardest-throwing arms from the college crop.Getting body comps to big relievers like Heath Bell and Jonathan Broxton, Barrett can flat-out bring it. He has the stuff to be a starter -- a role he fills in college -- with the plus fastball, a slider and a changeup. But his size to go along with a maximum effort delivery and spotty command have many believing he'll be in the back end of a bullpen as a reliever.A team could send him out as a starter in order to let him work on his pitches, but with a fastball that hits the upper-90s and the kind of aggressive mentality you like to see in a short reliever, he could move more quickly in a bullpen role."
