Coming off a 12-2, 1.56 sophomore season, Bloomquist seemed poised to challenge Cal State Fullerton's Thomas Eshelman for ace honors in the Big West Conference. He had a lesser season as an encore but out-pitched Eshelman when they met head-to-head and remains a dependable, potential back-end starter from a pro standpoint. Bloomquist has solid sink on his fastball and more life on the pitch than Eshelman does, with similar consistent 88-90 mph velocity, peaking at 92. His slider and changeup also help him get groundballs with late, sinking life and grade as average pitches as well; he didn't give up a home run all season. Bloomquist lacks a put-away pitch but is durable and fairly athletic at 6-foot-3, 185 pounds.
