Righthander Danny Farquhar averaged 11.8 strikeouts per nine innings for Louisiana-Lafayette as a sophomore and maintained that whiff rate in the Cape Cod League over the summer. He wasn't nearly as dominant this spring (9.8 K/9), and his velocity was down as well. Farquhar pitched in the low 90s in 2007, but this spring he'd only flash that velocity for an inning or two. He likes to varies his arm slots from high three-quarters to sidearm, and his slider was flatter than it had been when he threw from the lower angle. He's just 5-foot-11 and 170 pounds, and there's effort in his delivery, so pro teams project him as a reliever.
