13 405 Minnesota Twins Ryan O'Rourke LHP Mass.
O'Rourke went 5-2, 1.25 with 93 strikeouts and 14 walks in 79 innings as a senior for Division II Merrimack. O'Rourke played baseball, football and hockey his first two years at Merrimack before cutting a tendon on his left thumb and missing all of 2009. He brings an aggressive football/hockey mentality to the mound, where he attacks hitters with an 87-91 mph fastball and touches 93 in short stints. His best secondary pitch is a 77-78 mph slurve that can be average at times, and he mixes in a below-average curveball in the low 70s. He rarely throws a changeup. O'Rourke has a strong, physical 6-foot-3, 215-pound build. His delivery has some effort and some stiffness, but it also gives him deception. He figures to be drafted between the 10th and 15th round.
