Ober's career has gone sideways since a 10-win freshman season that included a USA Baseball invite that summer. He missed 2015 with Tommy John surgery but never has gotten back to his early-career peak, when his fastball would reach 94 mph. He missed starts down the stretch of 2017 with back pain. At his best, Ober has deception and downhill plane in his 6-foot-9 frame, and he'll flash a plus changeup. His breaking ball remains slurvy and ranges from below-average to fringy. He's a good competitor and strike thrower with a 1.98 walks per nine average over nearly 260 college innings.
