    Righty Dan Barnes also has an outside chance to sneak into the top 10 rounds, though scouts have expressed reluctance to buy him out of his senior year at an Ivy League school. He did not exactly dominate against soft Ivy competition, either, going 1-3, 5.14 with 40 strikeouts and 19 walks in 49 innings. Generously listed at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds, Barnes is not physical, but he can run his fastball up to 93 mph with a bit of life, though it dips into the high 80s after a few innings. He leans heavily on his heater and has below-average secondary stuff, including a 75-78 mph curveball, a slurvy low-80s slider and a developing changeup. He sometimes struggles to repeat his arm slot, particularly as he gets tired, and he profiles as a reliever.
