    A sixth-round pick out of high school, Fox spent the first two seasons of his college career trying to be a two-way player. In so doing, he posted a 6.36 ERA over 52 innings. Once he left hitting behind and added a slider to his pitching repertoire, his career blossomed, and he was having one of the nation's best seasons with an 11-2, 2.02 record and 100 strikeouts in 89 innings. He has been closely scouted by all the organizations that place a premium on performance. Fox has excellent athletic ability, which helps him command his fastball, curveball, slider and changeup, making him a four-pitch pitcher. His delivery has some length to it, and though his quick arm makes up for it, he lacks deception. He's gaining experience using all his stuff, and his fastball is a little straight, but he has shown velocity in the low 90s, touching 96.
