Since an impressive start against North Carolina in March, Gustafson threw just 38 pitches the remainder of the regular season and had not pitched since late April. An impingement in his throwing arm led to discomfort and clouded Gustafson's draft stock. Early in the season he flashed a low-90s fastball, a power slider and well-above-average changeup. His high three-quarters arm slot enables him to pitch downhill, creating heavy sink on his fastball. Gustafson has an aggressive approach with a feel for pitching, working his stuff to both sides of the plate. His straight changeup has screwball-like action at 80-82 mph and his slider has been up to 85. Gustafson shows good competitiveness on the mound and the demeanor to pitch near the back of a bullpen. His endurance and durability are concerns, but if he recovers from his injury he could perform in a starting role.
