MLB Draft 2016: Dodgers take RHP Graham Ashcraft in 12th round

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers continued on the high school trail with their 12th-round pick in the 2016 MLB Draft, selecting Huntsville High School (Alabama) right-handed pitcher Graham Ashcraft with pick No. 371 overall.

The 6'2 right-hander was ranked by our David Hood as the 149th-best prospect in the draft, with Hood noting Ashcraft's plus fastball and the potential for plus-plus velocity. Ashcraft also played third base in high school.

Baseball America ranked Ashcraft No. 175, noting that he hit 99 mph this spring, but also that "he'll have to improve his control and feel for pitching to remain a starter in the long run."

He is committed to play college ball at Mississippi State
