View Draft ReportA Kent State lefthander was named Mid-American Conference pitcher of the year, but it wasn't Andrew Chafin. It was Kyle Hallock, who returned for his senior season after the Phillies drafted him in the 49th round last June. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder is a craftsman who gets outs by throwing four pitches for strikes. He excels at pitching off his fastball, working both sides of the plate at 87-88 mph and peaking at 90. His changeup and slider are solid offerings, giving him a chance to remain a starter when he gets to pro ball.
