Orvella featured by Baseball America (ESPN)

The college infielder turned pitcher Orvella is on the radar as the closer of the future:

Orvella had only 12 saves during the season between low-Class A Charleston, Double-A Montgomery and Triple-A Durham. But he has excellent command of a fastball that reaches 97 mph, solid secondary stuff (above-average changeup, average slider) and the aggressiveness to go to the back of a big-league bullpen and be effective.
