Luensmann, a Pennsylvania native, was drafted in the 39th round out of high school by the Mets. He continued on to Nebraska, where he quickly emerged as the team's closer. He built on his performance for the Cornhuskers with a solid showing in the Cape Cod League. His progress was slowed, however, when he required Tommy John surgery and missed the 2018 season. When healthy, Luensmann showed a solid combination of stuff and control. His fastball sits around 90 mph and he mixes in a slider and changeup. That mix, his solid control and his size--he's listed at 6-foot-4, 237 pounds--give him a chance to start.
