    Stony Brook righthander Tom Koehler has improved his stock as a senior by getting his body into much better shape. Koehler has always had good stuff and ran his fastball up to 94 as a junior, but scouts shied away from him because of his weight, and he went undrafted. He worked hard to firm up his body in the offseason and lost 35-40 pounds, and he anchored Stony Brook's America East-championship pitching staff this spring, going 6-5, 4.15 with 111 strikeouts and 45 walks in 93 innings. He works in the 92-94 range with a sinking, average to plus fastball, and he pitches off it well. His slider is a plus pitch at times, and he mixes in a promising changeup with some tumble. He'll flash a good overhand curveball, but other times he'll throw a flat one. His arm action has some funk, with a wrap in the back that affects his command, but with a 6-foot-3, 235-pound frame, he has a chance to be a workhorse if he can keep his body in shape.
