A New Jersey high school product, Light attracted attention on the showcase circuit in the summer of 2008, but he didn't get drafted until the 28th round in 2009 (by the Twins) and headed to Monmouth, where he has carved out a solid career. He has added weight to his projectable frame and is now listed at a physical 6-foot-6, 200 pounds. He has dominated his competition this season and was 7-3, 2.81 with 87 strikeouts in 86 innings. He throws a ton of strikes with a fastball that ranges from 90-96 mph and has walked 12 batters on the season. Both his slider and changeup need work but flash promise. If his secondary stuff progresses, he has the frame, arm strength and command to be a starter, but he could feature a plus-plus fastball in a late-inning relief role.
