Toplikar missed the 2015 season trying to rehab an elbow injury, but ultimately had Tommy John surgery and missed the 2016 season as well. He eased back in as a reliever in 2017 and returned to starting in 2018, going 6-3, 4.07 as a redshirt sophomore. Toplikar has an appealing pitcher's body at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds and a fluid delivery out his high three-quarters arm slot. He throws strikes and pitches deep into games, but he lacks a plus pitch. Toplikar's fastball sits in the lows 90s and touches 94 mph. It can be too straight at times, so at midseason he added a two-seamer that dives under righties' hands to help generate more swings and misses. He throws an 11-to-5 curveball he can land for strikes as his main secondary pitch. Toplikar has his suitors, but his injury history, lack of an out-pitch and middling performance have teams wary of his upside.
