Littrell moved into a weekend starting role as a Kentucky freshman three years ago, a tribute to his competitiveness and tremendous feel for pitching. The 6-foot-3, 195-pounder usually operates at 89-90 mph with his fastball and maxes out at 92, locating it to both sides of the plate. Some scouts say his changeup is his best pitch, while others point to his newly added cutter, which is tough on lefties. He also can spin a curveball for early-count strikes. Littrell can get wild at times, and his delivery is a little stiff and features a minor wrist wrap in the back, but he still projects as a starter. He has good bloodlines, as his grandfather Jack was a big league infielder and his father was a pitcher who signed with the Dodgers as an 11th-round pick in 1977. Corey was a Nationals 43rd-rounder as a Kentucky high schooler in 2010.
