Among college closers, the pitcher who improved his lot the most was South Florida senior righthander Kevin Quackenbush, who came on strong after the addition of pitching coach Chuck Hernandez, a former big league pitching coach. Quackenbush found the strike zone more frequently this year with his 90-95 mph fastball and walked just seven this season, about a third of his past walk rate. His secondary stuff isn't special, but he throws his slider with some power and has added a changeup. He's the top draft prospect for the Bulls.
