Fellows finished the regular season with the fifth-most strikeouts in the Southeastern Conference as Vanderbilt’s durable Friday night starter, a role he’s handled for two full years. While he’s reliable and strong, Fellows is still figuring out how to set up hitters. His 89-92 mph fastball gets some sink and he’ll touch 93-94 mph, but his fastball is often hittable because he struggles to hit his spots. He also led the SEC in wild pitches and hit-by-pitches. His plus slider is what will likely be his calling card in pro ball. It gives him a reasonable fallback option as a reliever if his fastball command and his fringe-average changeup don’t improve. Fellows’ lengthy track record of starting in a tough conference and solid Trackman numbers should help him go relatively quickly on Day 2 of the draft.
