Steckenrider annoyed area scouts in high school with his inconsistent effort while teasing them with his tools. After two subpar seasons at a sinking Tennessee program, Steckenrider shook some of his past reputation by performing well as a relief pitcher for new coach Dave Serrano. Physically gifted at 6-foot-5, 230 pounds, Steckenrider has huge raw power as a hitter but lacks the feel for the barrel to hit for average and fit a right-field profile. Instead, he'll go out on the mound, where he overpowers hitters with a 92-96 mph fastball. He may develop better secondary stuff once he gives up hitting and focuses on pitching full-time. He lacks the instincts to start despite pounding the zone with a plus fastball; his changeup improved under Serrano's tutelage but his breaking ball remains below-average.
