A 35th-round pick of the Rockies out of high school, Mullen barely pitched his first two seasons at UCLA before breaking out this spring. He began the year as a midweek starter who pitched in relief on weekends, but he worked his way into the weekend rotation during conference play and led the Bruins in wins (nine), strikeouts (87) and ERA among starters (3.19). Mullen’s fastball sits 88-92 mph as a starter and ranges from 92-96 mph as a reliever. His fastball isn’t exceptional, his mid-80s vertical slider is a dominant pitch he uses liberally. He can land it in the zone for called strikes or bury it for swings and misses. He also has a nascent cutter that shows promise and a low-80s changeup he’ll throw for strikes. Mullen is a good athlete, but his control is below-average. He pitches exclusively from the stretch and has some effort in his delivery, leading most evaluators to project him to relief.
