17 507 San Francisco Giants Chris Gloor LHP Conn.
Quinnipiac senior lefthander Chris Gloor burst onto the prospect landscape in the Coastal Plain League in 2007, ranking as the circuit's No. 1 prospect. Gloor pitched in the 90-94 mph range that summer, but his velocity dipped into the 83-87 range as a junior last spring, and he slipped to the Tigers in the 39th round of the draft. He rebounded a bit this spring, going 7-4, 4.63 with 81 strikeouts and 35 walks in 82 innings, and a number of scouts reported seeing him hold his 88-91 mph fastball velocity deep into some outings, though he still had days where he worked in the 84-86 range. Gloor has an average changeup and a fringy, loopy curveball, but he can throw all three for strikes. As a 6-foot-6, 255-pound lefthander with an idea how to pitch, Gloor could be drafted in the top 10 to 15 rounds.
