Career604.24.411.453.977.67
Drafted in the 17th round (511th overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2010
Eitel starred at quarterback for Rose-Hulman, an NCAA Division III school, setting school records for career passing yards (7,507), touchdowns (52) and efficiency rating (125.4). He also went 29-10 in four years in the Fightin' Engineers rotation, and his pro future will be as a righthanded pitcher. A 6-foot-5, 205-pounder, his sinker jumped 3 mph from 2009 to 2010. He pitched at 89-91 mph and touched 92 as a senior, and improved his slurvy slider. He also throws a changeup and splitter. His delivery puts stress on his shoulder, but his size, arm strength and athleticism will give a pro club plenty to work with.
