    View Draft Report
    Stutes rallied late to lower his ERA to 5.32, salvaging some of his draft stock. He has shown excellent velocity, hitting 94 mph at times and sitting at 89-92 mph. Even after four years of school, he's still more thrower than pitcher, however, lacking fastball command and a feel for pitching. He threw more sliders this year than in the past and throws a curveball and changeup. At times all four are average pitches. His lack of consistency might push him back to the same range of the '07 draft, when the Cardinals took him in the ninth round.
