Breaking the hamate bone in his left hand may have been the best thing that ever happened to Willoughby. Xavier planned on using him as a two-way player for the second straight season, but when he hurt his hand in the third game of the season he no longer could serve as the Musketeers' cleanup hitter. Once he focused on pitching, his stuff took off. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder has seen his fastball jump from 87-90 to 92-95 mph and his so-so slider turn into an 88-90 mph cutter that's a legitimate out pitch. He sometimes falls in love with the cutter, costing him fastball command. Through 24 appearances, he had a 1.12 ERA, a 40-11 K-BB ratio in 32 innings and a .170 opponent average. While Willoughby profiles strictly as a reliever, he could move quickly and earn a late-inning role in the majors. He has gone from not being on scouts' follow lists coming into the spring--they saw him more as a senior sign for 2013--to flying up draft boards, perhaps as high as the third round.
