Gilheeney worked as the Wolfpack's Friday starter this season after closing in 2008. Gilheeney has plenty of polish and throws his fastball, plus changeup and breaking balls in any count, and locates them all. Teams that saw his fastball in the upper 80s will be more inclined to buy into his great feel for pitching than those that saw his 84-86 mph games. Fellow Wolfpack lefty John Lambert had a big game against North Carolina with plenty of scouts in attendance, striking out 10 but walking nine. He also showed an average fastball and slider and power pitcher's approach to go with his 6-foot-7 frame. His delivery tends to get mechanical, making it tough for him to repeat his delivery.
