When Omogrosso threw 92-95 mph with a plus slider as a sophomore in 2004, he set himself up as an early-round pick for 2005. Tommy John surgery intervened, but he has pitched well enough in his comeback this spring that he could go anywhere from the third to the seventh round. Omogrosso has dropped his arm angle from low three-quarters to sidearm, and he hit 96 mph early in the year. He pitched at 92-93 with good life for much of the season before dropping to 88-91 at the end. His slider hasn't bounced back as well as his fastball, and his command is not sharp, but he's still a 6-foot-3, 225-pounder with a lot of arm strength.
