The Chicago White Sox have gone back-to-back pitchers. With the 124th pick in the 2021 MLB Draft, the White Sox selected Brooks Gosswein, a left-handed pitcher from Bradley University.

A Development Project

A true project for the White Sox player-development staff, the 6-foot-2, 205 lb lefty had quite a tumultuous college career. A four-year starter at Bradley, Gosswein showed serious potential early in his senior year, displaying a plus 96 MPH fastball and solid slider before seemingly falling apart and taking some time off. He ultimately turned in a 5.13 ERA with 53 strikeouts and 21 walks in his senior year.

Gosswein has a strong frame and should be able to settle in with a fastball in the 90-93 MPH range consistently. There’s no doubt he has the raw skill, but he will need to be developed.

In their draft profile, MLB.com describes Gosswein as follows.

“Gosswein looked like a top-three-round pick when he hit 96 mph and featured a solid slider when he blanked Ball for seven innings in his first start of 2021, but then gave up 15 runs in his next 5 2/3 innings over three outings and barely pitched for a month. He excelled in three April starts before struggled throughout May, and he’s an enigma with upside.”

Gosswein also showcased his own stuff via Twitter.

The projected slot value for Gosswein at number 124 is currently $460.0k.
