    Gunderson is the safest remaining Oregon State pick as a small lefty with three pitches he can throw for strikes. His stuff isn't as firm as it was last year. His fastball has sat in the 86-89 mph range and rarely hits the low 90s, which it touched consistently last season. His slider has gone backward as well, and he has compensated by showing improved control of his fastball and a solid-average changeup. Despite the dip in stuff, he was among NCAA Division I leaders with 15 saves. Gunderson also is a team leader and durable despite his small stature. He profiles as a lefty reliever if his slider comes back.
