Mid-American Conference pitcher of the year Josh Collmenter isn't pretty, but he is creative. A 6-foot-4, 235-pound righthander with a stiff body and an over-the-top delivery, he spent much of the spring pitching at 85-88 mph before reaching the 90s more regularly toward the end of the season. Velocity isn't the key to his fastball, as it misses bats because of its natural cutting action. Collmenter also throws a big, looping curveball at 69-75 mph and a changeup that he sometimes tips off by reducing his arm speed. He's also been known to mess with an eephus pitch and a knuckleball. Collmenter throws strikes, changes speeds, competes hard and has a deceptive delivery, all of which help him pitch above the level of his pure stuff. Scouts don't believe he has a consistently average pitch and wonder how his package will play in the higher levels of pro ball, but he could go as high as the fourth round to a club that believes in his feel for pitching and track record.
