Kentucky signee Pope has a big body at 6-foot-5, 225 pounds and resulting above-average velocity up to 93 mph, having been used in short stints. Essentially, he's a high school closer with short secondary stuff. Scouts in Tennessee are reminded of Mariners farmhand Stephen Pryor, but say Pryor was more polished at a similar stage.
