    Timmerman pitched two seasons of junior college at Wabash Valley (Ill.) JC before he transferred to Ohio State for the 2023 season. The 6-foot-4, 195-pound righthander struggled to an 8.37 ERA in 23.2 innings as a split starter and reliever with the Buckeyes, but excelled in a brief pre-draft stint in the Cape Cod League, where he posted a 1.72 ERA over 15.2 innings with 19 strikeouts and six walks. He throws a fastball that sits around 91 and has been up to 95, with solid spin and 17 inches of induced vertical break. His go-to secondary is an 80-mph slider that also has high spin rates—in the 2,700 rpm range—and he will occasionally mix in a harder cutter and a mid-80s changeup. Timmerman is young for a college player in the class and will still be 20 on draft day.
