Milroy has the best pure stuff of any draft-eligible pitcher in the Big Ten Conference this year, but his inability to harness it has relegated him to the Illinois bullpen. As a reliever, he can sit at 91-93 mph and touch 95 with his fastball, though he often has to dial down the velocity in order to find the strike zone. His 82-85 mph slider gives him a second plus pitch and can be more devastating than his heater, though he gets around his breaking ball at times. Scouts love Milroy's arm but wonder if he'll ever develop control, command, consistency and toughness.
