    Expectations have always been high for the 6-foot-6, 205-pound Blasko. His fastball has been clocked as high as 95 mph, and he regularly pitches at 89-93. Scouts don't believe his arm action allows much room for improvement on his below-average breaking ball, and getting removed from a late start with a stiff arm didn't help this Scott Boras client's stock. He shows a feel for changing speeds and using both sides of the plate. His mechanics have been inconsistent, which some scouts feel will lead him to the bullpen down the road.
