Players signed indicated in Bold
|Jamie Walczak started 55 games as an outfielder this spring, hitting .357, but scouts prefer him off the mound, where he went 4-3, 0.93 with five saves and 23 strikeouts in 19 innings. He has limited pitching experience, so his secondary stuff is underdeveloped, but he does pitch with a 90-92 mph fastball. He has an athletic, physical frame at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, and he figures to be drafted in the top 20 rounds as an intriguing senior sign.
|Steve Grife, generously listed at 6 feet, 170 pounds, has plenty of effort in his delivery, but he has handled a starter's workload the last few years. He ranked as the No. 3 prospect in the Coastal Plain League last summer and went 5-1, 3.24 with 73 strikeouts in 67 innings this spring. Grife pitches off a plus fastball that he can run up to 94 mph. While his secondary stuff has improved since last year, his curveball and slider are still below-average at best. He has feel for a changeup, but he often slows down his arm when he throws it. He profiles as a reliever in pro ball, and it's unlikely a club will buy him out of his senior year at Mercyhurst.
