Eppler stands out at 6-foot-5, 215 pounds with broad shoulders, a body made for pitching. His arm works well and he has a chance to stay a starter in pro ball, having held up well in his first season as Sam Houston State's No. 1 starter. Eppler's fastball has average velocity, touching 92-93 mph but sitting 89-91, and generally lacks life, so locating is crucial. He's athletic and strong enough to maintain his delivery and projects to have average control. He mixes in his curveball, which features 11-to-5 shape, and he has a good feel for using his cutter-like slider and fringy changeup.
