Texas Tech Baseball Pitcher Trey Masek Named as Top 100 MLB Draft Prospect
A Texas Tech baseball pitcher has been named as one of Major League Baseball’s top 100 draft prospects.
Red Raider junior right-handed pitcher Trey Masek has been named as the No. 81 Major League Baseball Draft Prospect by MLB.com.
Masek leads the Big 12 Conference with a 0.92 ERA in seven starts and 49 innings pitched. He currently has 48 strikeouts and a 3-0 record while allowing 13 walks and allowing opponents a .196 batting average.
This marks the second straight year a Red Raider has appeared on MLB.com’s Top 100 Draft Prospects list, following Barrett Barnes, who was tabbed as the No. 57 prospect prior to the 2012 MLB Draft. Barnes was selected 45th overall in the supplemental first round of the draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Earlier this season, Masek made national headlines by pitching 32.1 consecutive scoreless innings pitched, which is the longest streak by any NCAA Division I pitcher this season.
Masek is the 16th highest ranked collegiate right-handed pitcher, and is the fourth highest ranked prospect from the Big 12 Conference.
