When Bloom has all three of his pitches working and keeps them down, he profiles better as a starter than any of the Illinois lefties. The problem is that he's rarely in sync, which explains why he hasn't had a winning record for the Redbirds and owns a career 12-16, 5.63 mark. His 86-90 mph fastball is fairly straight but is effective when he uses his 6-foot-3 frame to generate leverage down in the zone. His curveball has added 4-5 mph in velocity this spring, and his changeup usually is a solid-average pitch.
