Krauth is a short (6-foot, 190-pound) lefty with below-average stuff but a track record of success thanks to an above-average changeup, command and his ability to mix pitches. Krauth's split-change is a swing-and-miss offering that is easily his best pitch. It's why he struck out 10 per nine as a senior. He really uses his below-average fastball (84-88 mph) to set up the change. He also throws a below-average slider and has added a get-over curveball that is a well below-average offering but one that works as an early count change of pace.
