Texas Christian planned on using Mitchell as its closer this year, but his first save situation didn't come until the fourth week of the season. The struggling Horned Frogs moved him back into their rotation, where he spent much of his first two seasons, in late March. Scouts still are uncertain of his future role, but they don't quibble with his fastball and curveball. His heater sits at 90-94 mph when he starts and can reach 98 when he relieves. He has the best curveball among college prospects this year, a sharp 80-81 mph bender that can be unhittable. At 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, Mitchell has the frame for starting. But his low three-quarters angle is more suited for the bullpen, and he may not have enough consistency with his changeup and his command (which has regressed this spring) to stick in a big league rotation. His stuff plays up and he's more aggressive as a reliever, and he could make an impact as a closer in the majors.
