Finnegan has some of the best arm strength in Texas, though that wasn't enough to keep him in the Texas State rotation. He struck out a combined 20 batters in his first two starts against Missouri State and Houston, then had just 28 in his next nine before moving into a relief role. Finnegan has an athletic 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame and a loose, quick arm, which combine to give him a 90-97 mph fastball. He has trouble harnessing his heater, however, and still hasn't mastered a reliable second pitch. He throws a slurvy breaking ball at 78-80 mph and doesn't have much of a changeup. There's effort in his delivery, too, and he'll probably become a full-time reliever in pro ball.
