Georgia Southern's Friday night starter, Eichhorn jumped into a regular starting role since his freshman year with the Eagles and is coming off his best season this spring. In 14 starts and 88.2 innings of work, Eichhorn posted a career-best 3.15 ERA with 106 strikeouts and 29 walks. Eichhorn pitches off of a fastball in the 90-93 mph range that plays up thanks to his exceptional command of the pitch. He's never walked more than 3 batters per nine innings over the course of a season and also had an impressive 29.2-inning stint in the Cape Cod League last summer where he struck out 25 batters to five walks, with a 3.34 ERA. Eichhorn also throws a fringe-average changeup, but he'll need to develop a usable breaking ball to have sustained success in the pro game. His curveball is below-average currently and gets slurvy so adding a slider or even a splitter or cutter given his fastball command might help round out his repertoire.
