    Righthander Josh Zeid was so inconsistent that he pitched just 43 innings in his first three college seasons, two at Vanderbilt and one at Tulane. He started to put things together for the Green Wave this spring, however, and should be one of the better senior signs in the draft. Zeid has a good frame at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, and the arm strength to pitch in the low 90s and touch 95 mph with his fastball. He could use more life on his fastball and more consistency with his slider and command, but he did make progress in all those areas. He projects as a reliever in pro ball.
