Kurz garnered scholarship offers from Louisiana State and Washington as a football linebacker out of high school, and he is in his fist year bearing down on pitching. His 6-foot-4, 220-pound frame and arm strength are his best assets, and he has run his fastball up to 93-94 mph this spring, though he was working in the 88-91 range down the stretch. He flashes an average breaking ball and tends to get around it in games, making it more of a slurve. He has a long way to go to improve his consistency with the pitch and with his nascent changeup. As a fresh power arm with a physical frame, Kurz could get drafted near the back of the top 10 rounds, but his upside is limited to the bullpen, and he figures to be a long-term project.
