Six-foot-6, 215-pound RHP Chance Caple and 6-foot, 150-pound LHP Casey Fossum offered a contrasting look--and contrasting styles--to hitters as the top starters in the Texas A&M rotation. Fossum was a seventh-round pick out of high school. Fossum's size and durability have become a concern to scouts. Most believe he was a better pitcher as a freshman than he is now. He has a whiplike arm action that produces an 88-92-mph fastball and excellent slider, his best pitch. He struggled early this season when he lost command of the slider. He continued to back right out of the first round with each inconsistent outing and now projects more as a second-rounder.
