After two seasons at North Central Texas JC, Kouba pitched his way out of the Dallas Baptist bullpen and into the team’s weekend rotation. He was impressively consistent after the role switch—he went 6-2, 2.77 overall with 87 strikeouts in 76.2 innings. He also demonstrated above-average control, walking only 23 batters. The 6-foot righthander has three usable pitches that all project as average and all three play up because of his impressive command. His 90-92 mph fastball will touch 94-95 and he spots it well. He does a good job of commanding his sweepy low-80s slider, but it’s not much of a bat-misser. His 83-85 mph changeup does flash above-average as it has some fade and he does a good job of starting it at the bottom of the zone where its deception and action can toy with hitters.
