If the ability to throw hard was the sole gauge in evaluating pitching prospects, Magnifico would be the No. 1 pick in this year’s draft. Hands down!

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound righthander has routinely hit triple digits this spring for Oklahoma, peaking as high as 103 mph. Only two or three other pitchers in this year’s draft class can legitimately claim to have reached 100, and then only in glimpses. Magnifico does it as a matter of routine.
