    Tredwell was one the top prep pitchers in his class as an underclassman at Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) High, but he missed his junior year after having Tommy John surgery and didn’t pitch his senior year. He returned to the mound as a UCLA freshman in 2022 and impressed in relief before moving into the Bruins rotation this spring as a draft-eligible sophomore. He went 4-2, 3.57 with 51 strikeouts and 12 walks in 45.1 innings before back and rib injuries ended his season. Tredwell is one of the tallest pitchees in the draft class at 6-foot-8, 230 pounds and is an imposing presence on the mound. His fastball sits 92-93 mph and touches 95 with excellent carry through the top of the zone. He complements his fastball with a 12-to-6 curveball in the upper 70’s that has plus potential, an above-average, low-80s slider with tilt and depth and a developing changeup that has average potential. Tredwell has excellent body control and repeats his delivery despite his long levers. He has plus control of his four-pitch mix and shows a good feel for mixing and matching his arsenal. Tredwell is a second-rounder on talent, but his medical history is concerning with elbow and back injuries already on his ledger. He projects to be a back-end starter if he can stay healthy.
