    Kuchno played only one year of high school baseball and began his college career as a redshirt walk-on at Wake Forest. After he grew four inches in a year and added velocity to his fastball, he caught the eye of Ohio State assistant Mike Stafford at a summer showcase and joined the Buckeyes. Now 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds, Kuchno works from 88-95 mph to 90-91 as a starter. He's still learning to command his hard curveball and profiles as a reliever with two potential plus pitches.
