An eligible sophomore, Vines couldn't match results with his stuff in a very erratic sophomore season. Texas A&M's Saturday starter for much of the year, he lost that job after walking five and giving up five runs while recording only one out in a start against Arkansas. Vines sits 90-91 mph with a fastball that shows good sink and will touch 93-94. His breaking ball will flash fringe-average and his changeup is a playable, below-average offering. Vines seemed to wear down as the season lengthened and he struggled to stay out of the top of the strike zone. Hitters tattooed him to the tune of a .348 average against in SEC games. His stuff shows promise, but his command issues and lack of results will work against a team paying a premium to buy him out of two years of school.
