    A 35th-round pick of the Mariners after an excellent career at Georgia prep power Parkview High, Ethridge has matured into a big, physical workhorse who anchors Mississippi’s staff. He’s the kind of well-rounded pitcher with plenty of top-level college experience and success that ensures he won’t have to wait long on day two of the draft to hear his name called, but he also lacks the projection and plus pitch that would push him into earlier consideration. The 6-foot-5, 240-pounder fills the strike zone with a 90-93 mph average fastball. At times, lefties seem to get a good look and hit him hard, but he also flashes an above-average changeup that should help neutralize them. His slider is average as well. With three 50-55s on his report and average control, Ethridge has a pro future. Finding an extra gear on one of his pitches will determine if he has a major league career ahead of him.
