Charlie Thames, rhp
Texas

Thames' stock skyrocketed when new Texas pitching coach Frank Anderson lowered his arm angle to a more natural three-quarters slot. As a closer he dominated college hitters, especially righthanders, with two dominant pitches: a hard-sinking 88-91 mph fastball and a nasty slider he varied speeds on. He was 4-1, 1.94 with 15 saves. His ability to throw every day makes him an ideal closer.
