Arkansas had one of the nation's deepest pitching staffs this spring, allowing the Razorbacks to use a premium arm like Sanburn in a relief role. He was just seventh on the team in innings pitched in May, but scouts had seen enough of him to put him toward the top of a large group of college relief pitchers. He cemented his place with a dominant outing against Missouri, striking out seven in four shutout innings and sitting in the 94-99 mph range. Sanburn hits 97 consistently with his fastball and has a power curveball in the low 80s, though he doesn't locate it well. He has dabbled with a slider and cutter to give him a breaking ball he can control better. He needs innings, having thrown just 62 in college so far after pitching and hitting in high school, where he was primarily an outfielder.
