Throughout the Draft Focus profiles that have been completed to this point, Perfect Game has covered a vast array of prospects for the 2014 MLB Draft and their journey to their elite statuses. Salisbury’s Austin DeCarr has taken a path different from everybody else and has seen his stock elevate as much as anybody else this spring.

The journey for DeCarr has been a long and winding one, which has seen him go from an undrafted member of the 2013 class to a likely top 3 round pick in the 2014 class. The Foxboro, Mass. native first made his splash on the national scene coming into the summer of his sophomore year when word began to circulate that he was touching 90-91 mph with his fastball. However, his progress was impeded by bone spurs in his throwing arm which caused him to miss his junior season and the subsequent summer, a time that is regarded as the most important season for players in their recruitment process.
