36 1087 Cincinnati Reds Chuck Ghysels RHP Ill.
Chuck Ghysels doesn't have a great body, but the 5-foot-10, 200-pound righthander has a 90-92 mph fastball that touches 95. There's effort in his delivery, though his arm strength should get him drafted in the middle rounds. He also has a good curveball but doesn't always throw it for strikes. After spending his freshman season at Dayton, Ghysels dominated the Illinois juco ranks, finishing among the national leaders with 117 strikeouts in 79 innings. He threw a five-inning no-hitter against Southwestern Illinois in a sectional playoff game and fanned 13 in a nine-inning no-decision in regionals. He's considered signable despite a commitment to Maryland for 2011.
