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          

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.

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.
