View Draft ReportThe top prospect in the region is at Southern Idaho, a junior college in Twin Falls. Righthander Tyler Curtis is 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, with a loose arm and a fastball in the 89-91 mph range, touching 94. His secondary stuff still needs work, but his breaking ball improved from last year to this year. He used to throw a slower knuckle-curve and has since scrapped that grip for a traditional curveball. His arm speed improved and he got more aggressive with the pitch. Curtis will need to watch his conditioning, as he's already a slow-twitch guy--runners stole 25 bases in 29 attempts against him this season.
