    Louisiana State lost Lane Mestepey to shoulder surgery during the offseason, then Brian Wilson (Tommy John surgery) and Brandon Nall (torn labrum) during the spring, leaving Sadler as the Tigers' best pitching prospect. He had Tommy John surgery himself while he was at Pensacola (Fla.) JC. Sadler has electric stuff at times, showing a 94-96 mph fastball and a hard slider. But his mechanics aren't the best-he's just 6 feet tall and throws with maximum effort-so his command comes and goes. When he's on, he has the weapons to be a major league closer.
