Fuller redshirted his freshman year at Arizona State because he was academically ineligible. Transferring to Chandler-Gilbert this season, Fuller has shown flashes of the talent that made him a 14th-round selection by the Devil Rays out of Gilbert (Ariz.) High in 2007. His fastball has been anywhere from 88-94 mph this spring and he gets a lot of run and sink on it. His secondary stuff is a bit behind and he's been going back and forth between throwing a curveball and a slider, although the rotation on his breaking pitches is getting tighter and he shows some deception with his changeup. The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder went 3-2, 2.36 with 72 strikeouts and 21 walks over 53 innings for the Coyotes this season.BA has it wrong, he was the Dodgers' 14th rounder, not the Devil Rays. Sounds like a decent pick, similar to Shane Dyer last year.

He threw the slider because of an injury and was unable to throw his curve. He now uses both and has great tools thast should help him along his way of becoming great!ReplyDelete
