Mississippi has a sure first-round pick in RHP Matt Ginter. Ginter's status is secure, though he has pitched poorly at times over the second half of the season. His lack of command at times reminded scouts of Eric DuBose, a top Athletics pitching prospect and former MSU first rounder who also fell out of sync in his draft year. Ginter's performances became so uneven that he was moved to closer, a role he excelled in last summer for Team USA and his projected position in pro ball. His two-pitch repertoire suits him for the role. He features a 91-92-mph fastball and a nasty 87-88 slider, one of the best breaking pitches in the draft. It is virtually unhittable when he locates it with precision.
