1. Jamie Moyer 2. Barry Zito 3. Darryl Kile


Large frame. Long limbs. Ideal pitcher's build. Fastball mostly 86-87 with riding life. Varies speeds on big, rolling 3/4 downer curve. Lacks command of all pitches, up with fastball and change. Deceptive velocity with sailing life. Misses bats. Non-athlete, doesn't cover much ground. Fastball will touch average. Needs to firm up curve. Works hard, well-prepared, good competitor. Stylish lefty with impressive command. Making of quality pitcher.
