2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: The Scottsdale native made the decision to go to the University of Indiana. During his first two seasons there, he fought a couple of injuries and threw just 8.1 innings. He put things together his junior year. He went 9-2 with a 2.04 ERA. He was named the Big 10 Pitcher of the Year and helped lead his team to the College World Series. The Twins took him in the 5th round. He went to E-Town and gave up one earned run in 19 innings. He moved up to Cedar Rapids in 2014 and was 7-7 with a 4.54 ERA before making three starts in Ft. Myers in 2014. At 6-10, he’s one of the tallest pitchers in baseball. He doesn’t throw real hard, but he’s aggressive inside with a 92-93 mph fastball with sink. He also throws a changeup, a cutter, a slurve, and his slider can be a swing and miss pitch. He throws from a three-quarter angle, and sometimes even lower.
