While shortstop Kenton Parmley had the third-longest hitting streak in NCAA Division I history (47 games) and third baseman Trenton Moses finished the regular season leading the nation in on-base percentage (.549) and slugging (.802) at the end of the regular season, it's Simmons who's the top prospect at Southeast Missouri State. When he's on, he has three solid pitches in an 89-93 mph fastball, a hard slider and changeup with tumbling action. He doesn't hold his velocity deep into games or show much command as a starter because of his size (5-foot-11, 176 pounds) and has a lot of effort in his delivery. As a result, he profiles as a reliever, a role in which he has been clocked up to 96 mph in summer ball.
