Is there something about him being Diabetic?  I caught that being discussed but wasn't sure which prospect it was. But it was about someone who was still left.  Just checked and yes he has type 1

Yes, that's what is being discussed.

Nothing wrong with being Type 1  :'(

Who are we hoping is there at 22?  Seen a ton of Wilcox mocks. How do we feel about that?
Great stuff. Had he played this season and continued his improvement, he'd be top 10. He has control issues and doesnt really pitch as much as he throws. His scouting report is similar to Jackson Rutledge's last year

College pitcher. Not surprising.  He had back problems.

Cade Cavalli, the No. 22-ranked prospect for the 2020 MLB Draft according to MLB Pipeline, showcased his two-way abilities during his time at Oklahoma, though the right-hander is expected to focus on pitching at the professional level. Here are 10 facts you should know about Cavalli.

• Along with playing baseball, Cavalli has a passion for cutting hair. In fact, Cavalli has an Instagram page (@cavz_cutz) dedicated to his craft, showing off the work he's done for teammates, friends and family. It's a hobby that started early for Cavalli, who buzzed his own hair as a kid before later buying a self-cut system that enabled him to cut and style his own hair with more detail. He's become the go-to barber for many current and former Oklahoma baseball players.

• When he's not cutting hair in his free time, Cavalli is also an avid outdoorsman who enjoys both duck hunting and bow hunting for deer with his teammates and his brother, Tristian.

• Cavalli's father, Brian, also played baseball at Oklahoma in 1990. Brian Cavalli was selected in the 50th round of the 1989 MLB Draft by the Cardinals, but instead chose to attend college and play for the Sooners. He later spent one season as a catcher for Class A Boise in the Angels' farm system.

• Similar to his father, Cade Cavalli was drafted out of high school -- he was taken in the 29th round of the 2017 MLB Draft by the Braves -- but instead opted to play at Oklahoma.

• Cavalli, who also played basketball in high school, set the Bixby High School record for doubles and extra-base hits in a single season as a junior. Cavalli didn't take the mound until he was a sophomore at Bixby High and missed most of his senior season with back issues, but still emerged as Oklahoma's top prep pitching prospect in 2017.

• That back injury didn't stop Cavalli from contributing as a two-way star upon his arrival at Oklahoma. He played in 62 games (55 starts) as a freshman, hitting .202 with six home runs, while also striking out 18 batters over 17 1/3 innings in his 11 pitching appearances, including a pair of starts.

• Cavalli took his game to another level in 2019, starting 12 Friday games on the mound and appearing in another 19 games as a designated hitter. He went 5-3 with a 3.28 ERA over 60 1/3 innings, while posting a .319/.393/.611 hitting line across 72 at-bats. Cavalli's all-around contributions earned him First Team All-Big 12 honors as a utility player.

• His fastball sits at 92-96 mph and tops out at 98 mph with riding action. Cavalli can also make hitters look bad with a low-80s curveball that has both power and depth, and he has developed an upper-80s slider/cutter that is catching up to his curve, according to MLB Pipeline. He's shown the potential for an average changeup, though he'll need to start using that pitch more often.

• Cavalli was selected to play for the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team last summer. He made one appearance for Team USA, allowing one run over 2 2/3 innings in his lone appearance against Cuba.

• Cavalli was off to an impressive start on the mound in 2020, racking up 37 strikeouts to just five walks over 23 2/3 innings in four starts before the season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Doesn’t sound like he has pitched enough to hurt his arm.

 Commentator said he ticked all the boxes for measurables, not surprised he ticked this box as well. Waiting to see if he's a Boras client

I'm still on this Garrett Mitchell thing. He did well in the CCBL. 5 tools. BA had him as the #8 prospect including international in their futures guide. Oh, well.

He has the potential be a front of the rotation starter with 3 out 4 above average pitches from what I've read.

*Live Fastball
*Power Curveball that's 10-15 mph slower
*plus potential Cutter
*Changeup that could be decent

It's just that having back problems already as a college pitcher is worrisome to say the least.

Late bloomer, high velo, repeatable motion, top of the rotation potential. Sounds great and very much a Rizzo pick.

Didn’t it say his back issues were in HS?
