Sopko took a year to adjust to college ball after arriving from a Montana high school, but once he caught up he developed into one of the West Coast Conference's more consistent starting pitchers. He's similar in some ways to former Gonzaga star Cody Martin, who reached the major leagues with the Braves in 2015. Sopko has reached 94 mph in the past and, at times, sports an above-average slider as well out of a three-quarters arm slot. Most of the time, though, the 6-foot-2, 220-pounder pitches with a fringe-average heater from 88-92 mph with just so-so life and has to be fine with it. His slider and changeup most frequently are average pitches at best, so he'll have to locate with precision to get outs regularly with three average pitches.
