Evans enrolled at Georgia Southern with impressive credentials. He won the Connie Mack World Series while playing for an East Cobb, Ga., team, and went head-to-head with No. 1 pick Matt Bush and the U.S. junior national team in an exhibition game in the summer of 2003. He compiled a 2.27 ERA in seven starts for Orleans last summer in the Cape Cod League, helping it claim the league title. His success did not carry over into his junior season at Georgia Southern, however. He missed a month with a stress fracture in his right elbow, and although he's regained his velocity his command and stuff have been underwhelming. Evans' fastball touched 95 mph but it's flat and lacks life. His 84 mph slider has potential to be a plus pitch, but he frequently leaves it up in the zone. He also will show a below-average changeup. Evans' delivery needs to be tweaked. He lands on his heel with a stiff front leg, preventing him from pitching downhill effectively.
