    Conine saved 25 games the last two seasons as Cal State Fullerton's closer, including the clinching victories in the Stanford Regional and Long Beach Super Regional in 2017. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Conine is dependent on his velocity for success because his fastball is straight and lacks life. He gets swings and misses when he's at his best, regularly reaching 95 mph. At other times, his velocity drops to 90-91 mph and he gets hit around. He gave up more than one hit per inning as a junior because he spent more time at his lower velocity. Conine's best secondary offering is an above-average, power curveball in the 79-80 mph range and he can throw his changeup for a strike as well. Conine has a chance to move fairly quickly as a reliever in pro ball, but only if he can find a way to maintain the upper end of his velocity range. He projects to be picked toward the back of the top 10 rounds.
