    Jared Poche will leave Louisiana State as one of the most successful pitchers in program history. Coming into the NCAA super regionals, he needed two wins to become the all-time winningest pitcher in the storied program's history and he's spent four years in LSU's weekend rotation. That came on the heels of an outstanding high school career as well. Poche's lack of a true plus pitch and his below-average 86-88 mph fastball velocity will cause him to slide in the draft, but his savvy, his ability to command his at times above-average curveball and a fringe-average changeup give him a chance to be a crafty pro pitcher.
