Year   Team       IP   K/9   BB/9   K/BB   HR/9   H/9   RA                  
2005   Kentucky       42.2   6.4   4.1   1.6   0.4   10.9   5.55                  
2007   Kentucky       17.2   10.5   4.7   2.2   0.5   7.8   4.71          

Honors:

  • 2008 Brooks Wallace Pre-season Watch List

Strengths:
Like Louisiana Tech’s Luke Burnett, Green is 6-foot-8 and has a lot of promise. Green threw in the mid-90s before Tommy John surgery forced him to miss 2006 and most of 2007. He throws from a high sidearm arm slot and a crossfire angle, making it tough for hitters to pick up his pitches.

Weaknesses:
His slider has sweepy break but is inconsistent. He’ll be 22 when he’s drafted and he will have to prove to scouts that he’s healthy to merit a high draft pick.

The Future:
#20-#30 draft pick overall
