    Storm is a towering 6-foot-7, 232-pound presence on the mound who showed one of the best fastball/slider combinations of any lefthander in the country in 2023. A three-year reliever, Storm had a career season this spring, when he posted a 2.36 ERA over 29 appearances and 45.2 innings, with a 38.7% strikeout rate and 9.1% walk rate. He does a nice job missing bats and avoiding hard contact, while attacking hitters from an over-the-top slot with his high-carry fastball and high-spin slider. The fastball sits in the low 90s and has been up to 95, but the pitch plays up thanks to his slot and the 20 inches of induced vertical break on the pitch, helping him generate a 28% whiff rate. His slider is a hard breaking ball in the low-to-mid-80s that is thrown with around 2,500 rpm on average. It was an effective pitch vs. both righties and lefties and Storm showed an ability to manipulate the pitch nicely, with more slurve action against righthanded hitters and more sweeping, horizontal movement against lefties. Storm has a big frame with both big stuff and big performance to go along with it, and could be an exciting power reliever who gets selected on day two.
