    Six-foot-5 LHP John Lannan enjoyed a strong 2005 season, going 10-2, 2.29 while striking out 83 in 83 innings. But his fastball topped out at only 88 mph and scouts question whether his delivery will allow him to add velocity. He commands his changeup to both sides of the plate, but has no real breaking pitch as he struggles to spin a curveball.
