Strode began his college career at Indian River State JC before transferring to Florida State for his sophomore year. He was a key part of the Seminoles bullpen for the next three years, making 74 appearances in his career. He served as Florida State's closer this spring and succeeded in the role despite underwhelming stuff. Strode is deceptive, which helps his mid- to upper-80s fastball play up. His slider is his best secondary offering and he also throws a changeup. Strode's deception makes him especially tough on lefthanded hitters, and he likely fits best as a lefthanded specialist as a professional.
