Rigthhander Colin Rea's freshman season at Northern Iowa was the last in the program's history, and after a year at St. Petersburg (Fla.) CC, he reunited with former Panthers coach Rick Heller at Indiana State. The 6-foot-5, 205-pounder has opened eyes with his arm strength, and he has better secondary pitches and mechanics than former Sycamore Jacob Petricka, a second-rounder last year. Six-foot-5 and 205 pounds, Rea has an 88-92 mph sinker that peaks at 94. He has a mid-80s slider that morphs into an 88-89 mph cutter at times, and his curveball and changeup also have their moments. With his easy arm action and repeatable delivery, he should fill the strike zone, but he nibbles at the plate and doesn't challenge hitters like he should.
