Kumar Rocker - Prospect Profile

Prospects Live - Nov. 11th: "The slider might be the best pitch in the draft. The biggest question mark on Rocker will be his ability to continue limiting at-bats and walks. The fastball command can waver when he's not on, leading to traffic on the bases."

Ian Smith - Prospects 365 - Nov. 8: "The Vanderbilt ace presents the most ready MLB body and arsenal as we stand right now, led by a plus fastball sitting in the high 90s with a wipeout slider that could grade out to be a 70-grade offering."

JD Linhardt - Diamond-Digest.com - Aug. 19th: "The breaking ball is what is going to make Rocker one of the first players off the board in June. His slider is an absolutely filthy offering that has earned a 70 grade from me. The pitch’s vicious bite and touch of gyro spin (which gives the pitch a good amount of drop) made college hitters look silly, and according to some it even improved metrically in the brief 2020 season."

Jonathan Mayo - MLB.com - June 17: "A dominant freshman year and strong start to his sophomore year, with the same high octane fastball-slider combination but with better command, makes him the clear choice atop this list."
