With their 27th round pick in the 2014 Draft the Cleveland Indians have selected left-handed pitcher David Speer out of Columbia (NY).

Born: 8/14/1992 – Height: 6’1” – Weight: 185 – Bats: Left – Throws: Left

Jeff Ellis: David Speer is a command control lefty out of Columbia. He dominated the Ivy League for a while and was the first unanimous Pitcher of the Year in the Ivy League in a decade. He has four pitches all of which he can throw for strikes. He sits in the mid to upper 80’s, but his best trait is his command. He walked just seven players this year and struck out 75. He is a senior and will be added to the Indians minors. With his command I feel like he has a very good chance to be a LOOGY down the road. He should be given every chance to start but his velocity is what might hold him back in the end.

Lefty pen arm, can't have enough of these guys. Think: Randy Choate.

David is a freakin stud - Indians fans should absolutely be keeping an eye on him as he progresses.
