View Draft ReportSix-foot-4, 230-pound RHP Nate Fogle has contributed as both a set-up man and part-time closer, going 4-2, 2.16 with five saves and 41 strikeouts in 42 innings. He has adapted well to aluminum bats after two years pitching only to wood, and a new role after going 21-1 as a starter in two years at Oregon's Mount Hood Community College and 20-2 in summer competition with the Aloha (Ore.) Knights, the 2004 National Baseball Congress World Series champions. He has solid stuff from a low arm slot, with a 90-92 mph cut fastball and a three-piece slider. He is still getting accustomed to bullpen work, but he is well-suited to it because he is big, strong and durable and has a closer's makeup. Fogle turned down significant bonus money from the Giants last year as a draft-and-follow to pitch at Oregon State, so it wouldn't be shocking if he decided to come back for his senior year with the Beavers.
