Stevens opened a lot of eyes in mid-March, when he overmatched Milledge. He has done that to a lot of Florida hitters with an arsenal that includes a low-90s fastball, hard curveball and solid changeup. He has a thicker frame and more power to his game than Maine does, his curve has more of a downward break and his change is slightly superior. But Stevens also exerts a lot more effort in his delivery and isn't as projectable. Scouts compare him to a bigger and stronger version of Sterling Hitchcock because they have the same arm action.
