    Another draft-eligible sophomore, Kensing surfaced as a possible first-round pick when he unveiled an explosive sinker in a season-opening tournament at the Astros' Minute Maid Park. The pitch usually arrives at 90-92 and is so heavy that batters struggled to put it in play in the air. He also has a four-seam fastball that has topped out at 94 mph, a high-70s slider and a splitter that serves as his changeup. He generates so much arm speed that it sometime affects the command of his slider. More of a position player in high school and never a regular starting pitcher before 2003, Kensing wore down at midseason and earning a temporary demotion to the bullpen. Now he probably will last until the second round.
