A former walk-on who has turned himself into a draft prospect, Howard was set to play club baseball at Cal Poly after getting into the school for his academics. Instead, he made the varsity team after a fall tryout, sitting 84-85 mph at the time. He's added strength to his 6-foot-3, 185-pound frame and added velocity with it, at times hitting 96 mph and pitching at 92-93. His fastball has late finish and gets swings and misses in the zone, and he can locate it inside to lefthanded hitters. Howard has a very smooth and easy delivery. Scouts can project an average changeup and see some ability to spin a slider with some depth, though at times it morphs into a flat, hard cutter in the upper 80s.
