Year   Team       IP   K/9   BB/9   K/BB   HR/9   H/9   RA                  
2005   Maryland       13.0   6.2   1.4   4.5   2.1   6.9   4.85                  
2006   Maryland       53.0   5.6   3.1   1.8   0.8   11.2   6.96

Strengths:
Tidball has a major league plus pitch, an overhand curve ball that misses bats.  As a starter, he throws his fastball in the mid to upper 80s, a circle change and a two-seam fastball.

Weaknesses:
He throws across his body, which adds to his deception but inhibits his velocity and could cause arm problems.  He doesn’t maintain arm speed on his changeup.

The Future:
Tidball might have a future as a middle reliever in the big leagues.  He could be taken after the 30th round if he has a solid senior season.
