Kellogg, a native of Ontario, Canada, was drafted by the Blue Jays in the 12th round of the 2012 draft, but turned down a chance to sign with his hometown team to go to Arizona State. He quickly found success in the desert and threw a no-hitter against No. 3 ranked Oregon State as a freshman. But this year, much like fellow Sun Devils lefthander Brett Lilek, Kellogg has been inconsistent. He's a tall, big-bodied southpaw whose pitchability outshines his pure stuff. A 6-foot-5 frame allows him to throw from a good, downhill angle, and he's at his best when he keeps the ball down in the zone. Kellogg throws his fastball around 88-91 mph with sinking action. His changeup is his best secondary offering, while his slider and curveball can be inconsistent. Kellogg has some feel for all four of his pitches and earns praise from scouts for his makeup.
