Scouting the 2015 Draft: Kyle Funkhouser
BA's #4 draft prospect for 2015 is college RHP Kyle Funkhouser of Louisville. Funkhouser certainly had a stellar season in 2014 with a line of 13-3, 1.94, 120.1 IP, 65 BB, 122 K's. He is solidly built at 6'2", 218 lbs. According to Kiley McDaniel, who ranks him at #10, Funkhouser's FB sits 92-94 MPH and tops out at 96. He gets raves for his ability and willingness to work both sides of the plate which a lot of college pitchers are not willing to do. He has a plus slider to go with the FB. The changeup is promising, but less developed. As you can tell from the walk rate, he loses command at times.
