    View Draft Report
    Snead has been an integral part of Florida's bullpen since arriving on campus. Entering the draft, he has made 99 career appearances, the sixth most in program history. Snead throws from a three-quarters arm slot that makes him tougher on lefties and adds movement to his fastball, which typically sits 88-90 mph. He throws a solid breaking ball and has a changeup to combat righthanded hitters. Snead has built a strong track record at Florida and can be an effective middle reliever, but should at least be able to find a role in pro ball as a lefty specialist.
