    RHP Steve Obenchain is compared to former Evansville righthanders Andy Benes and Preston Larrison for his size and stuff. His fastball ranges between 89-91 mph, and his plus changeup is the key to his success. Obenchain has been used primarily out of the pen this season out of need and because he has a resilient arm, but scouts think he will make it as a starter. He led the Missouri Valley Conference with a 1.50 ERA, 11 saves and 10.13 strikeouts per nine innings.
