Ht.: 6'5" / Wt.: 210 lbs

Steele was the No. 320 prospect in the 2015 BA 500, and he spent one year at Vanderbilt before transferring to Chipola. This spring, he got off to a strong start, with his fastball working mostly at 90-91 and touching 93. He missed some time due to a blood clot, and he slowly returned to form as the spring unfolded. Towards the end of the season, Steele was back at full strength, slinging his low 90s heater from his low three-quarters arm slot and mixing in a hard sweeping breaking ball and potentially above-average changeup. He has excellent size and is said to have high extension according to TrackMan, giving him the deception for his stuff to play up.
