    Clark was a key bullpen arm as a freshman during Kent State's run to the College World Series and remained in that role as a sophomore. He moved to the rotation as a junior, and his draft value depends on whether teams project him as a starter or reliever. Clark performed well down the stretch and generated late helium as Kent State reached regional play. Early in the season his fastball sat 87-90 mph, but it was 89-92 late, touching 95. Clark's top secondary pitch is a slider that shows at least average potential but has been inconsistent. His changeup is a serviceable offering that will need to improve to stay in the rotation. He has shown enough strike-throwing ability to be tried as a starter and has the physique to start at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds.
