    Craft barely pitched in his first two seasons in college, redshirting in 2004 at Pepperdine and working just 10 innings last year after transferring to Dallas Baptist. This spring, he has emerged as the best prospect on a Patriots roster full of pitchers who can top 90 mph. Craft relies on two pitches, a hard sinker and a slider. His two-seam fastball usually ranges from 90-93 mph. There's still some projection left in his 6-foot-3, 180-pound frame. Both Craft's performance and his control have been inconsistent this spring, but he won over scouts with an early May outing against Texas. Pitching in relief, he allowed just two hits and one run in 5 1/3 innings, striking out four while topping out at 94 mph. The Longhorns torched the rest of the Dallas Baptist staff for 15 runs in 10 2/3 innings during a doubleheader.
