Bowlan is a massive, 6-foot-6, 260-pound righthander who went from being a part-time starter/reliever as a sophomore to a weekend starter as a junior. He's pitched better than his 2-9, 3.71 record would indicate. He's allowed 93 hits in 85 innings, but he's only walked 18 while striking out 104. His stuff has stayed firm as a starter and he sits 91-94 and touches 95 with a three-pitch mix while carrying that velocity deep into games. His changeup and slider are both below-average pitches right now, but they flash potential to be at least average offerings eventually. Bowlan has the frame to be a durable back-end starter and unlike a lot of big-boned pitchers, he already has solid body control and above-average control for his age.
