    Watson entered Illinois as a two-way player but settled into a role on the mound, and has flashed good stuff over three years in the Big 10, but has never put together the performance to back it up. A 6-foot-1, 195-pound righty, Watson has a solid delivery and pitches in the 89-91 mph range, but touched 94 mph last fall. He has three secondary pitches, but a curveball is his most consistent offering and looks like an average pitch at his best. Watson has never missed as many bats as his stuff might suggest, and while he had a career year this spring with a 3.65 ERA over 13 starts and 69 innings, walked 39 batters compared to 49 strikeouts.
