Ambriz has been the Bruins' Friday starter and cleanup hitter this season, making him one of the nation's most valuable college players. While he has a decent lefthanded bat, Ambriz' future is on the mound. He's a physical righthander who holds his solid-average stuff deep into games and competes well. Ambriz needs to trust his fastball more. It sits in the 91-92 mph range, and he does of a good job of keeping it in the lower half of the strike zone. He has several secondary pitches that could work well in the bullpen, including an 82-84 mph slider that at times has good depth. His 86-87 mph split-finger fastball has been his put-away pitch when he's been able to command it. Ambriz also toys with a curveball and changeup. Ambriz had shoulder surgery that prompted him to take a medical redshirt in 2004 but has held up under the strain of hitting and pitching this season. His body also will require hard work to keep in shape, as he has a tendency to gain weight.
