25 755 St. Louis Cardinals Jason Buursma RHP Pa.
Bucknell's Jason Buursma won Patriot League player of the year honors for his two-way prowess, and he won all four of Bucknell's Patriot playoff games out of the bullpen, working 10 combined scoreless innings. Buursma throws from a low-three-quarters slot that isn't quite as low as O'Neil's, though he doesn't have O'Neil's velocity, working in the 85-88 mph range with his sinker. He also commands a fringy slider that gives him another weapon against righthanded hitters. Buursma is a winner who knows how to pitch, and he should get a look after the 15th round.
