Naughton's lefthanded arm strength kept scouts intrigued throughout his time at Virginia Tech. The Massachusetts native has struggled to perform throughout his career with the Hokies; in three years he posted an ERA north of six in just under 180 innings. He seemed to have turned a corner following his sophomore year, when he posted a 1.68 ERA in 42.2 innings in the Cape Cod League. There, Naughton showed upper-level evaluators a low 90s fastball that reached 93 mph and a hard top-to-bottom curveball. He has a long arm swing with a high back elbow as he cocks his arm in the back. Naughton has below-average balance over the rubber and has a tendency to rush his delivery. He has a quick arm and has shown flashes with two pitches and performed in the Cape, so a team could look at him as a low-cost, relatively high-ceiling project.
