    View Draft Report
    Qsar led Pepperdine to its surprising West Coast Conference regular season title as both the Waves’ top power hitter and closer. Qsar finished second in the conference in home runs (13) and fifth in saves (seven). Qsar’s looseness and above-average power in his lefthanded swing has most teams wanting at least send him out as a right fielder at first, but his below-average contact ability has most believing he’ll eventually to convert to pitching. Qsar sits 91-93 mph and touches 95-96, with the possibility of more velocity once he focuses solely on pitching. He has a fringy 82-85 mph slider as his main secondary, and inconsistent control makes him strictly a reliever. Qsar is a redshirt sophomore who missed a year after having lower back surgery, which scares some teams. Others like him on the draft’s third day.
