Aardsma was the best Cape Cod League reliever last summer, regularly throwing 94-95 mph, topping out at 97 and showing a quality slider. He posted a 45-5 strikeout-walk ratio and limited opponents to a .084 average. He started out well this spring, but mechanical problems have sapped his stuff and knocked him out of the first round. His velocity has dipped to the low 90s, and his command, movement and slider all have dropped off as well. Aardsma has a long, loose build (6-foot-5, 190 pounds) but sometimes gets his elbow up and flattens out his stuff. The consensus is that he's no better than the fourth-best pitching prospect at Rice, behind sophomores Philip Humber, Jeff Niemann and Wade Townsend. Aardsma still will get taken in the second or third round, though whether he'll sign for less than first-round money is unknown.
