Littleton might be the surest bet of anyone in Southern California to play in the big leagues. He's a proven college pitcher with a no-nonsense approach. Few can match his knack for pitching. He has excellent command of three pitches, including a fastball that tops out at 92 mph. He gets good movement, which will give him an edge against hitters using wood. His slider and changeup are also solid pitches, but he doesn't have a surefire weapon to get lefthanded hitters out consistently. He also doesn't get a lot of strikeouts because he uses his fastball so much. A seventh-round pick of the Expos out of high school, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound Littleton struggled with his command as a freshman. It has been the strength of his game the last two years. He walked 11 in 72 innings this season. Littleton's chances of going in the first round were damaged when he was suspended for six weeks in midseason for an undisclosed off-field incident. He did not pitch well in his return, and was bumped from the Titans' weekend rotation late in the year.
