A filled-out and physical, 6-foot-4, 215-pound righthander, Albright has been a solid performer over three years for Kent State—in a reliever role his first season and as a starter for the last two. This spring he posted a 3.40 ERA over 15 starts and a career-high 82 innings, with 102 strikeouts (11.2 K/9) and 40 walks (4.4 BB/9). He was named to the second-team All-Mid-American Conference for his efforts and was one of just five MAC pitchers to tally 100 or more strikeouts. Albright has a four-pitch mix with a fastball that sits around 90 and touches 95 mph, a mid-80s slider, an upper-70s curveball and a mid-80s changeup. He generated a decent amount of swing and miss with all of his secondaries, but his fringy control throughout his collegiate career might make him a better fit for a bullpen role. There’s some violence in his delivery with length and inversion in the back of his arm stroke and some head whack in his finish, but a team might see his deep pitch mix and give him a chance to start at the next level.
