Name: Connor Garrett Staine
Born: Jan 12, 2001 in Clinton, NJ United States
High School: West Morris Central HS
Ht.: 6'0" / Wt.: 200 lbs

Drafted in the 5th round (146th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2022 (signed for $400,000)
Staine pitched for Maryland for two seasons before heading down south and transferring to Central Florida, where he had a breakout season during 2022. After posting a 6.49 ERA for Maryland in 2021, Staine posted a 1.87 ERA over 43.1 innings this spring, striking out 51 batters (27.7 K%) and walking 21 (11.4 BB%). The 6-foot-4, 200-pound righthander has dealt with back and blister issues this spring, but when healthy he’s shown electric stuff. His fastball sits in the 92-94 mph range and has been up to 97, with solid riding and running life. He throws two breaking balls: a low-80s slider that flashes above-average with short, two-plane break and a slower and loopier curveball in the mid 70s that will blend in shape at times. Staine will also throw a very rare changeup that needs plenty of work. Staine has athleticism and physical projection remaining, with solid strike-throwing ability now despite a lengthy arm stroke that features some plunge and extended action in the back. On top of his spring performance, Staine also pitched well in a 15.1-inning stint in the Cape Cod League with Brewster in 2021—posting a 2.35 ERA with 16 strikeouts and just four walks.
