If Long had 2-3 more mph on his fastball, he'd work into first-round consideration, as he has demonstrated the ability to consistently work the bottom of the strike zone while baffling hitters with his three-pitch mix. But Long sits 89-91 mph instead of 91-94, limiting his upside. Long already commands his fastball well, and is capable of spotting it to the arm-side and glove-side. His changeup and slider are both average pitches as well which explains how he's managed to rack up four double-digit strikeout games this season. Just as importantly, Long rarely misses up in the zone and has proven very difficult to lift the ball against--he's allowed two home runs all year. Even without premium fastball velocity, Long has a solid overall package and has the look of a polished college pitcher who could climb the ladder quickly.
