33 Konner Wade P

Height: 6-3 Weight: 190

Age: 21 Bats/Throws: left/right

Hometown: Scottsdale, Ariz. Birthday: Dec. 3

Drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 35th round out of Chaparral High School in 2010. Selected by the Colorado Rockies in the seventh round of this year’s MLB draft after drawing national attention at the University of Arizona.

The tall right-hander threw two complete games at the 2012 College World Series to lead the Wildcats to the national title. His performance earned him a spot on the CWS All-Tournament team.

Got out of the gates quickly for the Dust Devils, allowing just two runs in his first two starts and holding batters to a .194 average (6-for-31) over his first nine innings. Still looking for first professional victory.
