    Blair jumps off the page when you look at Marshall's roster, if only because he hails from Las Vegas, 2,000 miles from Huntington, W.Va. He also stands out with a 6-foot-5, 220-pound frame and a fastball that ranges from 88-95 mph with heavy life. He works with a plus changeup that has good fading action and throws a curveball and slider, both of which are inconsistent but could be average pitches. Given his three-quarters arm slot, Blair might be best suited moving forward with the slider. Scouts also love his bulldog mentality on the mound. He was 5-4, 2.36 in 11 starts for the Thundering Herd with 78 strikeouts and 26 walks in 72 innings. Opponents were hitting just .176 against him and he had surrendered only one home run. He is unlikely to get past the second round.
