SP Kevin Mulvey - Villanova, Junior

6'1", 170

May 18th (the game I saw) - 8.2 IP 10 H 3 ER 1 BB 6 K (128 total pitches) 12 FO 7 GO

Season - 3.61 ERA 3-8 92.1 IP 91 H 23 BB 88 K .254 BAA

Advanced college arm that should move quickly through a system…his plus control and ability to consistently locate his best pitch, a heavy fastball that sits in the low 90s, are his biggest strengths…his slider is another plus pitch, and he can also throws a better than average slow curve along with a developing change – these two pitches were often used interchangeably…Mulvey will have to overcome the short righthander stigma (listed at 6’1”, 170), but gets high grades on every evaluation concerning character and mental maturity on the mound…his four pitch arsenal and ability to induce more grounders than fly balls should make him an attractive candidate for teams willing to look past his size…Mulvey has a real shot to get picked in the second half of the first round and will surely be off the board by the end of the supplemental first…these projections may be a bit overly optimistic, he had the look of a 2nd-3rd round arm to me on the day I saw him (Mulvey was very good, but ND’s Jeff Samardzija clearly outpitched him)…fun fact: he can also throw in the low 70s with his left arm…
