Round 40 – Pick #1212

RHP – Carter Loewen – Yale Secondary School

Despite not being related to Canadian former first round pick Adam Loewen, Carter is a good Canadian baseball prospect hailing from Abbotsford, BC. Here’s what Perfect Game had to say about him, via Bob Elliot at the Canadian Baseball Network:

“Loewen has an outstanding 6-4/205 build with lots of projection. He topped out at 85 mph on the mound and there is plenty more in his arm. He also showed big gap to gap power from the right side at the plate.”

“Loewen was impressive over a quick 2 inning outing, getting a pair of strikeouts and flashing high-end projection and ability. He worked 82-85 with his fastball, coming downhill with it hard and spotting it to both sides. Showed advanced feel for a two-plane slider at 68-71 as well. Highly projectable arm. He also contributed offensively with a pair of hard singles, showing quality bat to ball skills and a smooth stroke.”
