Marlins prospect Tyler Kolek got his first win of the season Wednesday for Low-A Greensboro.
The right-hander surrendered just two hits over five scoreless frames. He got knocked around a bit in his first two outings, but that's not unusual for a 19-year-old in his first full year in the minor leagues. Last year's No. 2 overall pick routinely hits triple digits with his fastball. Wed, Apr 22, 2015 04:38:00 PM

Marlins signed first round pick RHP Tyler Kolek.

Kolek, who is one of the hardest throwing high school pitchers ever, will net a $6 million signing bonus. The big right-hander still needs to work on his command and improve on his offspeed offerings, but he's an outstanding young talent.

Marlins selected high school RHP Tyler Kolek with the second overall pick in the draft.

MLB teams love the big right-handers from Texas (the Marlins once got a really good one in Josh Beckett), and Kolek is one of the biggest, checking in at 6'5" and 250-260 pounds. He throws in the mid-90s, hitting 100 mph on occasion, and he has a pair of breaking balls. His command lags behind his stuff and he needs to work on his changeup, but he's quite a talent.
