Ty Blach
Name: Tyson Michael Blach
Born: Oct 20, 1990 in Omaha, Neb. USA
College: Creighton
Ht.: 6'1" / Wt.: 213 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: L
Drafted in the 5th round (178th overall) by the San Francisco Giants in 2012 (signed for $224,500)
Blach has been a steady starter at Creighton for three years, claiming a role in the weekend rotation as a freshman, winning 10 games in 2011 and leading NCAA Division I with 18 regular-season starts this spring. Though his stuff hasn't been quite as crisp as it was a year ago, he finished the regular season with a streak of 18 innings without an earned run. Blach's stuff isn't overwhelming, though in a down year for college lefthanders he's attractive as a southpaw who commands three average pitches. His fastball sits at 89-92 mph and occasionally hits 94. His changeup is more effective than his breaking ball, a hybrid between a curveball and a slider that usually arrives at 80-82 mph. There isn't room for projection in his 6-foot-1, 200-pound frame, so he's pretty much a finished projection, but as a potential No. 4 starter he could come off the board around the fifth round.
