LHP Chad Bentz didn't pitch well in a starting role for Long Beach State and appears to have dropped out of the early rounds. Born with a badly deformed right hand, Bentz pitches and fields balls with the same hand, like Jim Abbott, but he lost the feel on his changeup prior to the season and floundered. The Alaska native, eligible as a sophomore, eventually regained his form in a relief role. He felt more comfortable in three- and four-inning stints, after which his command would desert him. Still, he's a lefthander with a 90 mph fastball, and that's always an attractive commodity.
