Drafted in the supplemental 1st round (34th overall) by the Chicago White Sox in 2004 (signed for $975,000)
An unsigned sixth-round pick of the Marlins out of a Virginia high school in 2001, Lumsden has one of the nation's best power arms for a southpaw and has earned comparisons to Andy Pettitte for his size and aggressiveness. Lumsden usually works with a fastball in the 89-92 mph range and can touch 94. His curveball is a power pitch that he commands sporadically, but his cutter and changeup have a chance to be plus pitches. The cutter, a true power slider that he has developed this year, has made some lefthanded hitters look foolish. Lumsden still walks too many hitters and needs to be more efficient with his fastball. Opponents say he's prone to giving up the big inning; if he wiggles off the hook, he often settles in and dominates.
