    Fillmyer stands out as an athletic, fresh-armed Northeast pitcher. A New Jersey native, he pitched and played shortstop in high school and in his first college season, when he threw just eight innings. The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder's arm strength still prompted the Rockies to take him in the 28th round last year, but he returned to school. He had an erratic but intriguing summer in the Atlantic Collegiate League last year, ranking as its No. 4 prospect and sitting 89-92 mph while striking out 36 in 27 innings. He built on that this spring, pitching Mercer to the Division II Junior College World Series in Enid, Okla., winning all nine of his starts with a 0.60 ERA and 87 strikeouts and 17 walks in 60 innings. Fillmyer has a quick arm and the ability to spin a hard breaking ball. His slider sits in the low 80s and flashes above-average, while his fastball sits 90-93 mph and touches higher. His changeup needs work, but his arm action is clean and he has shown aptitude for pitching.
