The 6-foot-7 left-handed pitcher, who had signed to play collegiately at Volunteer State, wasted little time committing to the Rays. Spann has already agreed in principle to sign with the team.Here's our post that includes the profile on Spann. He's projectable at 6'7" and 185 pounds, but also very raw. His fastball touches 90 and could develop into a big pitch, but his breaking stuff needs a lot of work. I'd expect him to be assigned to the Gulf Coast League when he officially signs(I'll also update the Signing Board then, too).
“I haven’t signed the papers, but in my mind I’m already going,” Spann said. “It’s been in my mind the whole time that if I ever got an offer I was going.”
