    Null contributed from the moment he reached the Western Carolina campus as an unsigned 37th-round pick out of high school and has the fourth-highest strikeout total (265) in program history. He began the season strong and was a potential top-five-round pick, but injuries and reduced stuff caused him to finish the year slowly. Early on, Null was 90-92 mph and touched 93 while working downhill. But he was 85-88 down the stretch amid back troubles. While his slider showed plus potential early, it backed up closer to average with the reduced velocity. Some scouts say he throws his slider too frequently and believe it sapped his velocity. He rarely uses his changeup. Null is athletic for his 6-foot-8, 230-pound frame and throws a steady diet of strikes. He has a stiff, upright delivery with a short stride and arm action that puts stress on his shoulder and elbow. The total package should add up to a future reliever.
