    Entering the season, Ferguson was expected to play a key role on Vanderbilt's pitching staff and he was in the rotation on opening weekend. But he seemingly lost the ability to throw strikes and has spent the rest of the spring trying to work his way back. When he's right, Ferguson has electric stuff. He can run his fastball up to 98 mph and his power curveball flashes plus potential. He's never pitched with much command during his college career, but this year he simply struggled to throw the ball over the plate. He had walked 34 batters and thrown 9 wild pitches in 19 innings entering the NCAA Tournament. Ferguson's power arsenal and significant upside will likely entice some team to take on the project of getting him straightened out. But it's tough for a team to know just what they'd be getting after such a difficult season.
