    Bulger was a third baseman and DH in his first three seasons at Division II Valdosta State, and he continued to DH this year, leading the Blazers with a .345 average and 48 RBIs. He was used extensively as a pitcher for the first time, and scouts flocked to see the 6-foot-4, 215-pounder's fastball, which was regularly 93-94 mph and reached as high as 97. Bulger lacks feel on the mound, and he has little going for him at this point besides velocity and size, though that was enough to post a 1.49 ERA and 64 strikeouts in 49 innings. It's also enough to get him drafted in the third or fourth round, or even as a supplemental first-rounder if a team with extra picks wants to save money on a senior.
