2018 Mets draft profile: Brooks Warren

New, 6 comments

With their twentieth selection in the 2018 draft, the Mets selected Brooks Warren, a left-handed pitcher from Mississippi.

Name: Brooks Warren

Born: French Camp, Mississippi

Age: 20 (3/25/98)

Height/Weight: 6’3”/215 lbs.

Position: LHP

Bats/Throws: L/L

School: East Central Community College

Undrafted out of high school, Brooks Warren attended East Central Community College, where he played baseball for two years. As a freshman, he posted a 6.05 ERA in 38.2 innings pitched, allowing 49 hits, walking 34, and striking out 36 batters. He returned as a sophomore and had a much better year, being named to the MACJC Second Team All-State. In 65.2 innings, he posted a 3.56 ERA, allowing 45 hits, walking 38, and striking out 83. After signing a letter of intent committing to the University of Southern Mississippi, Warren has decided to stay a collegiate player, rather than become a professional.

At 6’3”, 215-pounds, Warren has a solid pitching frame. His mechanics are simple and repeatable. His fastball sits in the high-80s-to-low-90s, which is about average for a southpaw, and many scouts and evaluators believe that he will be able to throw harder in the future. His slider is a solid pitch, sitting in the mid-to-high-70s, but he has trouble commanding it, contributing to his high walk totals.
