After Elliott proved to be an excellent addition to Oklahoma State’s rotation as a freshman, an elbow injury wiped out most of his next two seasons with the Cowboys. Tommy John surgery and the recovery period meant he was sidelined from early in the 2017 season until late in the 2018 season. After a solid summer in the Cape Cod League, Elliott returned to the Cowboys’ rotation as a redshirt junior with firmer stuff than he had shown pre-injury, but it took him a little while to figure out how to best use his new stuff. Elliott is most comfortable sinking and running an average 90-93 mph fastball that can touch 95-96 mph. He relied more on his average slider early in the season, but he had his most success after returning to his roots, spotting his fastball and an average changeup. He doesn’t miss bats as much as he misses barrels, and he’ll nibble even when behind in counts, preferring to walk a batter than give him something to drive. His command is actually better than his fringe-average control.
