    The fifth-year senior is son of ex-big leaguer Gary. Brent Rustich was the Bruins' closer until he got hurt, and Roenicke took over for him while doubling as the team's center fielder (he's a plus defender there, but his bat is short). The 23-year-old Roenicke has shown 95 mph with his fastball and will spin a plus slider at times. His inexperience keeps him from repeating his mechanics consistently, but he's athletic at 6-foot-3, 195 pounds and has arm strength, two good building blocks for pitchers.
