Matt Farnum, rhp

School: Texas A&M U. Class: So.
Hometown: Littleton, Colo.
B-T: R-R Ht.: 6-1 Wt.: 185 Birthdate: 6/1/81
Previously Drafted: Rockies '00 (44th round).
Scouting Report: Despite pitching most of the year in relief, Farnum led Texas A&M in both wins and saves at the end of the regular season. A draft-eligible sophomore, he has succeeded by relying almost solely on a 91-95 mph fastball that he throws on a downward plane that belies his 6-foot-1, 185-pound size. Even with a curveball that's average on its good days, Farnum could go as high as the second round. There's word that he wants first-round money, so he could fall out of the early rounds altogether.
