Primarily a reliever as a sophomore, Masek emerged as one of the best righthanded starting pitching prospects in the Cape Cod League last summer. He carried that momentum over to the start of this season, when he allowed just one earned run and 21 hits in his first 40 innings. He hasn't been as sharp since a bout with rotator-cuff tendinitis sidelined him for a month. Masek throws strikes with four offerings, working primarily off an 89-93 mph fastball that reaches 95 and a curveball with some sharpness to it. He also has a short cutter/slider and a changeup. New Texas Tech pitching coach Ray Hayward, the 10th overall pick in 1983 and a former big leaguer, has done a nice job of helping him smooth out his delivery, which in turn has improved his command. Masek's relatively small stature (6-foot-1, 195 pounds) and monthlong layoff do lead to some concerns about his durability, though he still figures to go in the second round.
