RHP Colby Lewis is a beneficiary of modern-day medicine. He had Tommy John surgery two falls ago and has bounced back to become a legitimate first-round pick. His performance over the second half of the spring was not as impressive as his start, so his stock may have dropped marginally. He's a strong power pitcher with a quick arm capable of reaching 94-95 mph. He has trouble with his control, and his fastball generally tapers off after four or five innings.
