2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: Curtiss had Tommy John surgery in 2013 while at the University of Texas. However, he returned in 2014 as the Longhorns closer, helping them to the College World Series. He mixes good stuff with great intelligence. A double-major in college, Curtiss also has a high baseball IQ. The strong-armed righty works with a good fastball that often hits 94 mph. He also works in a good slider, a slow curveball and a nice changeup.
