View Draft ReportThe Aggies start Evans on Sunday, behind fifth-year senior Eddie Gamboa and junior Brad McAtee. While those two are better college pitchers--and McAtee, at 88-92 mph, has more present stuff--Evans has more upside and was leading the team in strikeouts despite opening the year in the bullpen. He has decent velocity on his fastball, sitting in the upper-80s after touching 90-91 as a reliever. With his projectable 6-foot-3, 205-pound frame, he should sit solid average as he fills out. Evans' secondary pitches are his forte, as he has an inconsistent curveball that at times is a plus pitch. His changeup, like his fastball, has armside run and grades out as an average pitch as well. Evans commands all his pitches but was still learning pitch sequences and how to pace himself.
