    Rasner's record at Nevada has fallen from 14-2 as a freshman, to 6-3 as a sophomore to 5-7 as a junior, yet his professional worth continues to rise. He now ranks as a late first-round or supplemental first-round pick, with the two Bay Area teams showing the greatest interest. He struggles at times with his command but has four pitches that work, including a fringe-average fastball. He throws at 88-90 mph and occasionally gets it up to 93. He also has an outstanding power curveball, which is impressive in the high altitude of Reno and even more so at sea level, though it lacks consistency. His other pitches are a slider and change.
