Bryan Bullington, rhp

School: Ball State U. Class: Jr.
Hometown: Madison, Ind.
B-T: R-R Ht.: 6-5 Wt.: 212 Birthdate: 9/30/80
Previously Drafted: Royals '99 (37th round).
Scouting Report: Bullington has been labeled first-round material since he earned all-conference honors and led the Mid-American Conference in strikeouts as a freshman. His stock went higher this spring when his velocity improved, he changed his arm slot and tightened up his breaking ball. He pitches at 92-94 mph with good life and displays pinpoint control on the black. He can reach back for 95-96 mph heat. After walking just 19 in 108 innings as a sophomore, he registered 139 strikeouts in 105 innings while issuing 18 walks this year. His 2.11 ERA led the MAC, and he had not allowed a home run, entering the conference tournament. But he was roughed up twice and allowed a pair of homers in Ball State's opening-round loss. Bullington's release point has varied from a low three-quarters to a high three-quarters. After settling with a straight three-quarters slot he developed a nasty, hard slider. He's a polished pitcher with a big league body, leading most scouts to believe he'll move rapidly up the ladder in pro ball.
