Feltner was well regarded as a prep at Cleveland-area powerhouse Walsh Jesuit High and he was drafted in the 25th round by the Blue Jays. He opted to instead enroll at Ohio State, where he had mixed results his first two seasons. He in 2017 had a breakout summer in the Cape Cod League, where he held opponents to only one unearned run in 13 appearances and was named reliever of the year. He carried that momentum into his junior year in Columbus and has found success in Ohio State's rotation. Feltner generates easy velocity and throws his fastball 93-97 mph. His fastball is fairly straight, however, and he gets squared up more often than would be expected. He mixes in a split-changeup, which he throws to both righties and lefties, and a fringy slider. He has done a better job in the last year of commanding his fastball, but he is still averaging four walks per nine innings--a rate that will need to continue to improve. Feltner, who is listed at 6-foot-4, 190 pounds, has the size, stuff and arm action to start. But after finding success at the back of the bullpen, he may be better suited for short stints.
