21 636 Toronto Blue Jays Chris Marlowe RHP Texas
Marlowe may be just 6 feet and 175 pounds, but he has big-time arm speed. He routinely works at 91-93 mph, tops out at 94 and has a feel for spinning a hard curveball. Those two pitches have allowed him to overwhelm hitters this spring, as he led all juco pitchers by averaging 17.3 strikeouts per nine innings through mid-May. He originally arrived at Navarro as a shortstop, so he's still a work in progress on the mound. Though his delivery is relatively smooth, he battles his command at times. An Oklahoma State recruit, Marlowe will pitch in the Prospect League this summer if a team wants to get more looks at him.
