View Draft ReportNick Kirk might have gone in the top 10 rounds last year if he hadn't hurt his forearm in early April, costing him the stuff that allowed him to throw a 15-strikeout no-hitter against Evansville. This spring, he regained his 89-91 mph fastball with nice run and sink, as well as a solid slider. As a 6-foot-1, 200-pound senior, he's not projectable, but he's a lefthander who throws strikes down in the zone.
