It’s hard for scouts not to compare Stallings and Mississippi’s Will Ethridge, as both are Friday starters in the Southeastern Conference who succeed with average stuff. Ethridge’s stuff is a tick harder, but Stallings has a tick more feel for pitching. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound righthander has a four-pitch mix where no single pitch even flashes plus. But his 89-91 mph fringe-average fastball plays up because of his plus control and advanced command. He also has shown he can throw his average slider and average curveball for strikes as well. He will flip in a below-average change regularly to keep hitters guessing. Stallings doesn’t have enough stuff to miss even SEC bats, but he knows how to pitch in traffic and he is quite steady and reliable—he finished the seventh inning in nine of his 15 starts as of late May. That durability and reliability should get him picked somewhere between the fifth and ninth rounds.
