Chris Flinn, rhp
Stony Brook (N.Y.)


Flinn was the best college pitcher in the Northeast this spring, according to a number of scouts and coaches. He continued to get better as the season progressed. A four-pitch pitcher, his fastball was normally in the 89-91 mph range with a high of 94. His best weapon is a knuckle-curve that one scout compared to Mike Mussina's, the standard by which that pitch is measured. Flinn, whose nine-inning average of 12.5 strikeouts was one of the nation's best, has sound mechanics and has never been hurt. The one knock on him is that he's a 6-foot righthander, which may knock him out of the early rounds.
