    Lefthander Dan Jennings has more projection remaining than most college juniors. There's room to add strength on his 6-foot-3, 183-pound frame, and he has a quick arm and clean mechanics. His best present pitch is his slider, which is more of solid offering than a swing-and-miss weapon. His fastball ranges from 86-90 mph and he keeps it down in the strike zone. Jennings, who has shuttled between the rotation and the bullpen for Nebraska, projects as a reliever in pro ball. He had a streak of 30 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings at midseason.
