    Otto got off to a slow start this season after battling some shoulder soreness in the leadup to the season. While he's not missed any time since the season began, his stuff has not been as sharp and the results have not been as good. Otto has allowed as many earned runs this year as he did in his freshman and sophomore years combined and his .241 average against is 100 points worse than the batting average he allowed as a freshman. Otto does still get to 95 mph on his better days, but there are other outings where he's 90-93 with a straight and hittable fastball. His curveball has flashed plus for three seasons and does give him a chance to have two above-average pitches in pro ball. Otto was used extensively last year (71 innings in 33 appearances as a sophomore), so there is some hope that his stuff will pick up in shorter stints.
