Prospect List: #18

We had a tie between the last two second rounders: Will Kline and Josh Butler, today we'll go with Kline:

The second round pick out of Mississippi University, Kline stayed even with top pick David Price during their match up in the regular season. Will likely become a reliever as he does feature three average to above average pitches; fastball that can reach 92, average change, and average slider, but when he has control of all three of them he can mix and match very well, deceiving hitters. Isn't afraid to pitch inside, and shows resiliency after recovering from Tommy John Surgery senior year of high school before going to become the Rebels' ace. Kline compares to Ryan Dempster in body size, repertoire, and likely career paths.

Tomorrow Butler and voting for #19.
