    Though righthander T.J. Walz set Kansas career records for wins (26), starts (50), innings (328) and strikeouts (307), scouts project him as a reliever because he's a 6-foot-1, 180-pounder who sits at 89-91 mph as a starter. He touches 93 mph and shows some plus sliders, and scouts like the way he throws strikes and competes. He'll be a good senior sign after telling teams last year that he wanted to return to school in 2011 to complete his degree. The Athletics took a shot at him in the 50th round anyway.
