    Oswalt played in the 2011 PG All-American Classic as a position player, but he has emerged as a better prospect on the mound this spring. Though he's new to pitching, Reed has intriguing upside thanks to his prototypical 6-foot-4, 210-pound frame, smooth arm action and sound delivery. He currently pitches in the 88-90 mph range as a starter but touches 91-92, and he has some feel to spin a breaking ball, though he doesn't really know what he's doing with it, in the words of one scout. His changeup is in its nascent stages. Oswalt is a long-term project, and he could develop into a higher-level prospect with three years working with Andrew Checketts at UC Santa Barbara, if no team makes a run at signing him this spring.
