Jeff Ellis: Abel Guerrero is a lefty from Galveston College. He is our first junior college player today and our second player in this draft from Galveston College. He has a 90-plus two seam fastball and is one of the best pitchers in the conference. He hails from the Bronx originally, which means cold weather would not be a problem for him. He has been a punch out pitcher in college first at Old Westbury and then at Galveston. He has some power in his arm which can be hard to find in a lefty. There is some potential in his arm, and to me maybe the highest upside of any player chosen today by the Tribe.
