    Reyzelman bounced back from Tommy John surgery to pitch two years at San Francisco, then transferred to Louisiana State for the 2022 season. He quickly earned the coaching staff’s trust as a reliever who could consistently miss bats and pile up strikeouts. Reyzelman’s approach was as simple as it gets. He’s a one-pitch pitcher who challenges hitters to hit his mid-90s plus-plus fastball that touches 99. He threw it 94% of the time this year. Even though hitters knew it was coming, they had a 39% swing-and-miss rate. Reyzelman has a three-quarters release point that gives him the analytically friendly combination of high velocity, a flat approach angle and vertical movement that consistently gets above hitters’ bats. At some point in pro ball, he’ll need to find a second pitch, but the quality of his fastball should give him some time to figure that out.
