Register pitched on the same high school team as Expos farmhand Nick Long and Dodgers prospect Edwin Jackson. While his polish, track record and quick arm argue for an early pick, his 6-foot-1, 162-pound frame is an impediment. His 16 saves in 2003 led the nation, and he pitched well for Team USA last summer as Huston Street's set-up man. When he's fresh, Register shows a 93 mph fastball from a lightning-quick arm and deceptive release, and he pitches consistently in the 89-91 range. His slider grades as an average or above-average pitch, an 83-84 mph breaker with depth. An excellent athlete, Register is a 6.6-second runner over 60 yards and fields his position well. He needs to shore up his command and balance in his mechanics, and he wears down due to his lack of strength. He moved into the rotation (making his first college start May 9 against South Carolina) in an attempt to better control his workload.
