Janas lacks the fastball velocity of teammate Travis Dean, but unlike Dean he performed well this season and could now get draft ahead of him. Janas started pitching just 10 months after having Tommy John surgery last year, and the 6-foot-5, 190-pounder was dominant by the time Atlantic Sun Conference play rolled around. He threw a ton of strikes with his 88-89 mph sinking fastball, helping him earn unanimous selection to the A-Sun all-conference team. Janas' slider and changeup grade out as fringe-average, but his command could push him into the top 10 rounds, especially if scouts think there's more velocity in there post-surgery.
