    View Draft Report
    Radford has had just two players drafted in the first 10 rounds in its history, and Butler figures to be the third this spring even though he doesn't stand out physically and was averaging less than a strikeout per inning in the Big South Conference. Butler, 6-foot-2 and 165 pounds, has a heavy fastball with boring action that ranges from 90-96 mph, and he has shown aptitude by adding and subtracting from it. He'll sit around 93 mph and amp it up to 95-96 against the middle of an order. He has touched 97 mph late in games. He throws a slider that could be a good pitch but currently lags behind, and his changeup needs work, which could explain why he's not striking more hitters out. Teams will likely give Butler a chance to stick as a starter, but he could move quickly in a bullpen role.
