Year   Team       IP   K/9   BB/9   K/BB   HR/9   H/9   RA                  
2006   Mississippi       63.0   6.6   4.9   1.4   0.6   9.7   5.57                  
2007   Mississippi       54.1   7.3   4.7   1.6   0.2   8.2   3.83          

Strengths:
Satterwhite may have the best pure stuff of any collegian. As Ole Miss’ closer in 2007, Satterwhite throws gas at 95-96 mph and also has a solid curve. Scouts think he’ll be able to move to the starting rotation as a pro. He’s got a pitcher’s body.

Weaknesses:
His stats don’t reflect his stuff. His achillies’ heel is his command and he’s walked a batter every other inning for his entire college career.

The Future:
Ole Miss will move Satterwhite to the rotation in 2008. If he shows better command and a better feel for his secondary stuff, he could be drafted in the first half of the first round. If not, he’s a pitcher with big upside and bigger question marks.
