Van Loon spent two seasons at Ohlone (Calif.) JC before transferring to UC Irvine and spent the last two seasons in the Anteaters’ rotation. He served as the Sunday starter this spring and went 5-3, 4.42 with 87 strikeouts and 20 walks in 73.1 innings. He gave his draft stock a late boost with a solid, albeit brief, showing for Bourne in the Cape Cod League after the season. Van Loon is a physical, 6-foot-5, 220-pound righthander who fills up the strike zone. His fastball sits at 89-90 mph and touches 94 and his main secondary offering is a 78-81 mph breaking ball with downer action. He mostly throws those two pitches, using his fastball to get ahead of hitters and his breaking ball to get swings and misses. He does have a changeup, but it’s a loopy, well below-average pitch he rarely throws. Van Loon allowed more than a hit per inning this season and is prone to allowing contact, but he keeps the ball on the ground to limit damage.
