A teammate of likely first round pick Josh Lowe, Rowland was seen by scouts often this spring. He has some projection in his 6-foot-3, 180-pound frame, and a strong arm. Rowland's fastball rubs 95 mph and sits comfortably at 91-92. He throws a slider that works in the upper 70s to low 80s and flashed powerful bite and projects as a solid-average offering. Rowland throws from a slightly lower three-quarters arm slot and has some funkiness to his delivery, with some length to his arm swing, leading some evaluators to project him as a reliever at the pro level. He is committed to Kennesaw State.
