    Pfeifer won four state championships at Farragut High and set a Tennessee state record for career wins with 46. He became an important member of the Vanderbilt staff in his first two seasons in college, before missing the 2014 season for a personal issue. The now redshirt junior returned to the mound this season and has become one of the Commodores most important pitchers. He began the season in the bullpen and saved five games before moving to the rotation in the middle of spring. Pfeifer has some deception in his delivery, which makes him hard to pick up and helps him pile up strikeouts. His fastball typically sits around 90 mph and both his curveball and changeup are solid offerings. Pfeifer has pitched well as both a starter and a reliever this spring and could start his professional career in either role. If a team sends him out as a reliever, he could move quickly through the minor leagues.
