Tribe nabs prep RHP Dillon Howard in second round of draft

By sstorm Published: June 7, 2011

With their second pick (67th overall) in the 2011 MLB amateur draft the Indians continued on the high school route, selecting right-handed pitcher Dillon Howard.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder from Searcy High School in Arkansas is considered a "Big, strong and projectable" pitcher according to MLB.com.

MLB.com's scouting report on Howard is also encouraging:

"Howard can get the ball up into the mid-90's with plenty of movement. While he's inconsistent at times with his slurvy curveball, it has a good chance to be a very good breaking pitch in the future. He's got a good changeup as well - at least a major league average pitch down the road. With a lively fastball and a chance to have  two very good secondary pitches, Howard has a chance to a front line pitcher in the future."
