Jonathan Bowlan is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Kansas City Royals of Major League Baseball (MLB).
His professional career began with a 1-4 record and a 6.94 earned run average in 35 innings with the Idaho Falls Chukars. His season began with Lexington Legends, but he ended up being promoted to Wilmington Blue Rocks.
On TV Bowlan watched the MLB draft with his parents, sisters, as well as a girlfriend. Then they plugged up a computer to the TV so that they could keep up with what was happening online.
Baseball America’s top draft prospects had him pegged as a second-round pick, with a ranking of 113. It dawned on him that he’d be captured far sooner than expected after receiving two phone calls from his advisor and an area scout.
If Bowlan had been selected on the second day of the draft, he would have received a pick worth $1.2 million. Despite his 6-foot-6 size, MLB.com’s scouting report lauded him for his 91-97mph fastball, as well as his slider and change-up.
As a result, Bowlan was the second-highest-drafted Tigers player in Tigers history, trailing only 1981 first-round pick Dave Anderson of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
During his junior season, Bowlan tallied 104 strikeouts, becoming the first Tigers pitcher since 2013 to record more than 100 outs.
