    Aside from McGuire and Jacob, Georgia Tech's next-best pitching prospect is righty Cumpton, who had trouble throwing his average 89-93 mph fastball and inconsistent curveball for strikes for much of the season but still was 8-2, 4.86 and pitched in the weekend rotation all season. Cumpton's delivery is so clean that he lacks deception and gets hit harder than his stuff would indicate. He has shown better velocity in relief stints, touching 95-96 mph in the past. He fits in the sixth- to 10th-round range.
