Bayooun sat 92-93 mph with a quality breaking ball in the fall but lost both his velocity and control in the spring after Long Beach State’s coaches attempted to raise his arm slot. After a midseason coaching change, Bayoon slowly began to get back on track and was up to 88-90 by the end of the year. His curveball has yet to regain its previous velocity and his changeup falls short of average. Bayooun is a strike throwing lefthander when he’s right. He improved enough at the end of the year to regain some of the interest scouts had at the beginning of the season.
