Balog generated buzz in the fall with his sturdy, 6-foot-5, 210-pound build and a fastball that touched 96 mph. He got out of the gate slowly this spring but has heated up as the season went on and was climbing draft boards as he pitched with more confidence and an aggressive demeanor. In addition to his durable frame, Balog shows the potential for three above-average pitches. His fastball sits in the 92-95 mph range with heavy life, and he holds his velocity deep into games. He throws both an 82-84 mph slider and a power curveball. Balog doesn't use his changeup much now, but it should be serviceable. He is a good athlete who also played four years of water polo in high school in San Jose.
