Below-average fastball velocity hasn't stopped Turley from carving up opponents this season, as he allowed one earned run or less in 10 of his 14 starts through the Big 12 Conference tournament. He usually pitches at 85-87 mph and rarely cracks 90, but he succeeds with his plus changeup and command. He also has a good cutter and an effective curveball. The 6-foot, 190-pounder probably won't ever throw any harder, but he's attractive as a lefthander who really knows how to pitch.
