Kurrasch was Penn State's best arm in 2012 after sitting out 2011 because he transferred from California. He went 4-2, 2.05 in 16 appearances (11 starts) and struck out 78 in 88 innings while walking 46. He has solid size at 6-foot-2, 205 pounds. He can get up to 92 with a solid changeup, but his breaking ball is below-average. He throws a little across his body and likely profiles as a reliever.
