    Arizona State senior RHP Jason Urquidez went 12-3, 3.41 while averaging nearly a strikeout an inning in 2004, when he was picked in the 11th round by the Reds. He chose not to sign, hoping to improve his draft position with another year in college. But the decision may have backfired as he went 7-4, 4.34 this season while striking out 71 in 87 innings. Urquidez has a complete repertoire but tends to be too fine with his pitches. He has a resilient arm, works at 88-89 mph, touches 91 and complements his fastball with a curve, slider and changeup--all of which he can throw from different arm angles.
