The 31st overall pick last June by the Twins, Heilman returned to repeat as Big East Conference pitcher of the year in a dominant senior campaign. He was 14-0 entering NCAA tournament play and led Notre Dame to its first-ever No. 1 ranking during the regular season. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound righthander, who led the nation in ERA as a freshman closer, has established himself as a workhorse over the last three years. While scouts don't project Heilman to add velocity to his fastball, he's one of the most polished hurlers available, with excellent command and stamina. His slider has become a dependable secondary pitch behind a 90-94 mph fastball with boring action. Last year he lacked an effective offering to combat lefties, so he has added a hard splitter with good downward bite while working on improving his changeup.
