    The Diamondbacks drafted Bishop in the 32nd out of high school, but the Orange County native stayed home to go to UC Irvine. Bishop's highly-anticipated junior season was thwarted after he strained his oblique during a bullpen session two days prior to Opening Day and missed the entire season. When healthy, Bishop entices as a 6-foot-4, 235-pound lefthander with big stuff, headlined by a 95-mph fastball. He throws both a curveball and changeup that are fringe-average but improving. Bishop's main issue is harnessing his velocity. He had 108 strikeouts in 102 career innings but also allowed 110 hits and walked 4.3 per nine in his career, indicative of both his below-average command and control. Bishop only began pitching his senior year of high school, so there is hope his command and feel to pitch will improve as he gets more experience on the mound.
