Brady Rodgers is one of these strike-throwing college right-handers who pays attention to mechanical efficiency and an up-tempo attack to compensate for fringy pro velocity.

This guy threw more fastballs than breaking balls in this look, topping out at 92 early and 87 late. I like how he approached and attacked hitters, but he needs more power to take this thing as far as it can go.
