Means has sustained two years of solid performance and strike-throwing ability in the rotation, making him a candidate to go in the top 10 rounds. He has a solid build at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, and his fastball works at 88-91 mph, touching 93, with some downhill plane and armside run. He hides the ball well in his delivery. Means' top secondary offering is his changeup that shows average potential. His breaking ball will have to improve for him to remain in the rotation, though it shows flashes. He offers pitchability and control, with a career walk rate of 2.6 per nine and a 2.4 strikeout-walk ratio.
