With Anthony Ranaudo a shell of his former self this spring, righthander Austin Ross became Louisiana State's most effective starter, going 5-4, 5.22 with 98 strikeouts in 88 innings. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder also made eight relief appearances, and he projects as a middle reliever in pro ball. When he comes out of the bullpen, he has a 90-93 mph fastball and a solid breaking ball. He throws strikes, but perhaps too many to the extent that he's more hittable than he should be, and his well below-average changeup isn't effective at keeping lefties at bay.
