Lovelady shows solid velocity for a lefthander, with the ability to run his fastball up to as high as 95 mph, though he routinely works at 90-94. He will need to develop a better breaking pitch going forward, but had success with the Owls this season. He posted a 2.96 ERA and struck out 52 batters in 45 2/3 innings.
