Fellhauer is one of the more exciting and dynamic players in college baseball. Similar to Lenny Dykstra in his build and playing style, Fellhauer has emerged as the best player on one of the nation's top college teams. Fans of the College World Series may remember the sensational throw Fellhauer made in 2007 to nail UC Irvine's Taylor Holliday at home plate to temporarily stave off defeat in the longest game in CWS history. Fellhauer seems to have baseball in his genetic code. His grandfather pitched for two years in the St. Louis Browns organization in the early 1950s, and his dad was a sixth-round draft pick of the Athletics years later. An alumni of the 2008 college national team, Fellhauer tied for the team lead with 26 hits and finished second on the team with a .299 average. He had performed even better this spring. Fellhauer is one of the finest defensive outfielders in the nation, showing the ability to run down drives in front of him, over his head and in the gaps. His excellent arm is made more effective by his accuracy and quick release. Fellhauer exhibits a quick bat and the ability to rip line drives to all fields. He projects as an average to above-average hitter, though his home run power is below-average. Fellhauer's lack of size and power may depress his draft stock, and some scouts have placed the dreaded "fourth outfielder" tag on him, but if he proves he can hit in the minors he should be a reliable big league starter.
