Lefthander Dan Runzler also moved from the rotation to the bullpen and has thrown much better in a relief role. Runzler was a 17th-round pick of the Mariners last year as an eligible sophomore and has shown similar stuff this season, with a fastball in the 89-93 mph range, hard slider and curveball. He added velocity to his curve and has late life up in the zone on his fastball. It's a swing-and-miss pitch at times, and he can get lefties and righties out when he throws strikes. His lack of command and polish is what keeps him from having much chance to start as a pro.
