Bordner capably served as Louisville's closer, but in mid-April he was shut down with an elbow inflammation. Before his injury, Bordner's track record of success bode well for him–he was a spectacular 2-0, 0.41 as a sophomore with 16 hits allowed in 43.2 innings. But even when healthy, his 90-92 mph heavy fastball (it's touched 94-95) was more an above-average pitch than the plus fastball usually expected out of dominating reliever. Bordner's breaking ball needs to get sharper as it earns 40-45 grades from scouts right now. Louisville hoped to see Bordner return for the NCAA tournament, but his injury status clouds his draft status.
