Tony Butler is tall (6-foot-7) and likely headed to Arkansas. He's the top lefthanded pitching prospect in the upper Midwest. He has an 86-87 mph fastball that tops out at 90, and his curveball is a good second pitch. His arm action isn't fluid, putting a lot of stress on his shoulder and making it difficult for him to maintain his velocity deep into games.
