    Barraclough had a solid four-year career at St. Mary's. He passed Tom Candiotti to rank second all-time for St. Mary's career strikeouts. Barraclough has a strong build at 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds. His fastball sits in the 91-93 mph range and touches 95 and he mixes in an above-average splitter that he uses as a changeup and an average slider. Barraclough smoothed out his delivery this year, but his control is below average, as he walked 47 batters over 79 innings. Barraclough will likely get a chance to start in pro ball, but profiles best in the bullpen. He was a 40th-round pick by the Twins last year, but is expected to go much higher this year, possibly even inside the top 10 rounds as a senior willing to cut a deal and give a team more spending flexibility.
