    Sherfy bring Southern California flavor to Oregon with his Jeff Spicoli-like shoulder-length blond hair and laid-back demeanor. On the mound, though, he's all business and has been one of the most dominant closers in college baseball the past two seasons. Sherfy injured his elbow in the final game of Oregon's super regional against Kent State last year, a stress fracture that caused him to miss summer ball. Some teams may shy away from him because of his 6-foot, 175-pound build, but he has shown the durability to pitch on back-to-back days and there's no denying his electric stuff. Sherfy's fastball has gotten better throughout the season, from 89-93 mph early to 94-96 more recently, and he mixes in a lot of nasty, mid-80s sliders. He's a bullpen guy all the way, so he should move quickly in pro ball.
