    Scouting Report

    August 2022 Update
    Rumored to be in play with the 8th overall pick, Prielipp fell all the way to the 48th pick where the Twins were happy to scoop him up and sign him to an overslot deal. Originally drafted by the Red Sox in the 37th round of the 2019 draft, the Tomah (WI) native instead honored a commitment to Alabama. His freshman year, where he was the Friday night starter, got off to a great start: 35 strikeouts, 5 hits, and 6 walks in 21 innings before the whole world shut down. When the lefty’s sophomore season got underway, Prielipp was a name mentioned as a potential top pick in the 2022 draft. But then came elbow discomfort and Tommy John surgery. While his recovery has gone as well as hoped, he wasn’t able to throw in front of scouts until a bullpen (in the rain) and the combine all within a month of the draft. At his best, Prielipp is a potential frontline starter with a mid-90s fastball, a hard slider that may have been the best in the draft and a change-up that is coming along. He will just need to prove that he’s the same pitcher now that he was before the injury.
