Dunning is a RP. Jake Johansen 2.0

Here's what Jim Bowden writes:
"Carter Kieboom 55 run 55 arm 50 defender grinder hard nosed solid player across the boards. Dane Dunning 91-95 FB college arm U of Florida. He had swing role for them but has a chance to be #3 type starter"

From what I'm reading Dunning sounds like a good pick. Wonder if he could help the bullpen later on this year...

Dunning is a RP. Jake Johansen 2.0

And Johansen sucks. Not really seeing this pick. Low to mid 90s sinker, just an average slider.

Riz must think Kieboom will ask for a ton, or they want to overdraft in the second. I think it's the latter.

Overdraft for the slot. I hate the pick. Oh well. Rizzo loves drafting terrible pitchers too!

Should've taken Jordan Sheffield over Dunning. Then again, I'm not a scout or front office executive so what do I know.

Hey, the Nats may just go with Dane in the BP from the get go. If they don't putz around with him like Johansen, and get him into the BP, maybe he sticks. Still only one pitch. Might play up a bit in velo with a BP role

He is pitching for Florida in a BP role, so I don't think his velo is going up unless there is something mechanically they adjust with him. You were right the first time, he is just an overslot pick who will likely be getting the least money they can get away with to either nab Kieboom or splurge on the 2nd round.

Baseball America writeups:

Carter Kieboom
Kieboom comes from a baseball family; his older brother Spencer is a prospect in the Nationals’ system, and his brother Trevor plays at Georgia. Carter is the best prospect of the brood. He showed impressive timing and bat speed at the plate throughout much of the showcase circuit leading up to his senior year, though he had a rough week at the WWBA tournament in Jupiter, Fla. This spring, Kieboom showed impressive first-step quickness and range at shortstop, leading some evaluators to believe that he can stick at the position, at least early in his career. Kieboom’s selective approach offensively is ahead of his years, but not necessarily conventional for his gap-to-gap skill set. He has some rough edges to him, but has done enough to push himself into day one consideration. Earlier in his high school career, he pitched ambidextrously, though his future is a shortstop. Kieboom is committed to Clemson.

Dane Dunning
Drafted in the 34th round out of high school by the Blue Jays, Dunning chose to go to Florida, and was a key piece in its top-ranked recruiting class in 2013. Due to the Gators’ depth, he has been used mostly as a midweek starter and out of the bullpen during his college career, but has still logged significant innings. Dunning runs his fastball up to 95 mph when he works out of the bullpen, but typically sits in the low 90s over extended outings. His changeup and slider both have a chance to be average offerings, but his slider is inconsistent. Dunning fills up the strike zone and, in early May, had nearly halved his walk rate this season. Though scouts haven’t gotten to see him start as often as they would like, Dunning has many of the tools necessary to be a starter and will likely begin his professional career in that role.

He's a spot starter for them, and some of the scouts think he'll be a SP. Check out the BA report that Houston put up

Carter better pitch a blowout one day so he can break out that two armed cheese.
