Drafted in the 5th round (143rd overall) by the Seattle Mariners in 2005 (signed for $190,000)
A big, strong and athletic power pitcher with an exploding 95 mph fastball, Kahn was the West Coast Conference pitcher of the year in 2004 and a member of the Team USA squad that won the World University Championship. He had every expectation of being a first-round pick in this year's draft but underachieved this spring, going just 4-5, 5.23. A year after being the only Division I pitcher with at least 12 starts not to allow a home run, he had served up 10 this year. He also surrendered 92 hits in 86 innings in a mid-major Division I conference. Scouts say the biggest difference was not in his velocity, which slipped marginally, but in his fastball command. He simply left too many balls over the heart of the plate and was hit hard. A maximum-effort pitcher who generally likes to go right at hitters, Kahn always had trouble mastering a breaking ball, but that pitch actually improved this year.
