The Rangers have also got the 29th pick and could balance college and prep choices with their two selections. Pearson is a 6'6", 245-pound righty who transferred from Florida International this spring. He’s got a big fastball, consistently 93-94 mph and up to 97 as a starter, with 100 reached out of the bullpen. His secondary stuff is inconsistent, though his changeup projects as a plus pitch, and some feel that once he focuses on either a curve or slider, that pitch will improve.
