Pfennigs is just your everyday athletic, 6-foot-7 basketball player/pitcher from Idaho who can touch 92-93 mph. In other words, he's nearly one of a kind. The Oregon State signee's best baseball is far ahead of him because he's bounced back and forth between basketball and baseball--he scored 21 points in the Idaho 5A state championship basketball game this year. Pfenning's stuff will need another tick to succeed in pro ball, as he's pitching with a fringe-average to sometimes average 89-92 mph fastball right now and his secondaries need refinement. If he makes it to Oregon State, he could rise up draft boards in three years after he fills out and gains more strength.
