A 6-foot-1, 175-pound righthander with a deliberate windup, high leg kick and some coil, Farr was poised to lead Northwest Florida State’s pitching staff after a solid freshman campaign in 2018 when he struck out 56 batters in 67.2 innings. He was off to an even better start this spring, posting a 1.38 ERA over his first three starts with 14 strikeouts and just three walks before injuries derailed the rest of his season. Farr showed big stuff prior to being sidelined, with a mid-90s fastball, 84-86 mph changeup and a downer breaking ball with 11-to-5 shape that all come from a strong, physical frame. Farr might have shown enough to pique scouts’ interest, but if teams are wary of his track record, he’ll have a chance to further improve his stock next season at South Carolina.
