Interest from scouts has been high for RHP Kyle Snyder, who has had an up-and-down spring, causing his stock to drop marginally. He should still be among the first 10 players drafted. Snyder shot to the top of the charts after one outstanding performance last summer in the Cape Cod League, when his fastball registered 96 mph and he showed masterful command of all his pitches. He did not reach that velocity this spring, settling for a high of 94, and he was more commonly in the 89-93 range. He was shut down briefly with triceps tendinitis. The 6-foot-8 Snyder pitches on a good downward plane and is a good athlete who excels at basketball and golf. He has never won consistently at any level. At his size, it has taken a little longer to get his body under control. He has an average curve, and lack of consistency with that pitch hurt his performance this spring. He also lost the feel of his changeup for a time. That was an outstanding pitch for him a year ago.
