Well, he’s got a cool name, at least

Just thumbed through the new issue of SI, and saw a bit about Colt Molloy, a Texas high schooler who just threw five straight no-hitters. Neat, huh? The reason I mention it here is because the article mentioned contacts with a Yankees scout.

There’s no reason to get overly excited: the only two guys to throw more consecutive no-hit innings in high school didn’t exactly pan out. I kinda wish the article talked about his stuff more, but it did make mention of a mid-80s fastball, something that doesn’t translate well in the bigs.

But, as a late-rounder? Yeah, he’d be worth a 20th round pick or so.
