    Tavera combined with Tanner King this season to throw Texas-Arlington’s first no-hitter since 1983. Tavera went nine innings on that day, but it took Texas-Arlington 11 innings to win the game, 1-0. That was just part of a dominating season where Tavera went 3-4, 3.04 with 12.7 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9. His 117 strikeouts ranked 25th among Division I pitchers. Tavera has gone from sitting in the high 80s to 91-93 mph with the Mavericks. In addition to his average fastball, he spins an above-average slider and mixes in a changeup. His delivery is a very simple one—he has an abbreviated takeaway that ensures his delivery is repeatable.
