Tolman began his career at Arizona State as a two-way player, pitching out of the bullpen as a freshman while also seeing time at designated hitter and in the outfield. The southern California southpaw was in the Sun Devils’ rotation in his third season in Tempe until suffering an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery. Prior to the injury Tolman delivered a fastball sitting 89-91 mph and touching 93, an invisible pitch that hitters had trouble following. What really made him effective was a plus changeup and a curveball that was a tick below-average but played up when mixed in with his other pitches. The command was the biggest issue, and he walked 53 batters over 79.1 innings in his ASU career. Scouts believed that he was very signable, especially since he wouldn’t be ready to pitch until sometime during the 2022 college season when he’d be approaching the age of 23.
