    Another fixture on two national title teams, Price has been a stopper for the Gamecocks. He went unsigned as the Diamondbacks sixth-round pick last season and is now 22 years old. South Carolina started him in the rotation, but he returned to the bullpen where he's needed and gets better results. He's been up to 95-96 mph in the past, but sits 89-93 and has a low-80s, two-plane slider that is average to a tick above. Scouts wonder how he doesn't get hit more as his pitches are not true swing-and-miss offerings, but he feeds off of adrenaline and has swagger on the mound.
