Uelmen has the durable size (6-foot-3, 210 pounds) and sinker command to be a durable, back-of-the-rotation starter. He's posed more than 190 innings the last two seasons at Cal Poly, relying heavily on a sinker that earned one comparison to Derek Lowe. He'll sit at 90-94 mph with his two-seamer, using a fast arm to get heavy late sink. His breaking ball, a slurvy slider, gives him an average secondary pitch. Uehlmen had improved his strikeout rate significantly, from 6.8 last year to 9.2 in 2017, while still keeping his walks low. He has a chance to be a back-of-the-rotation starter and could go out as high as the fourth round.
