Basham projects among the draft's first 100 picks, though he posted a horrific 0-7, 6.39 record for Richmond. He's a radar-gun pitcher all the way, and Colonial Athletic Association coaches acknowledge his raw stuff was the best in the conference. He has shown spurts of pitching ability but generally is erratic. Everything he throws is hard, including a fastball clocked as high as 95 mph and a slider at 84. Basham lacks confidence in his stuff because he's had little success as a college pitcher. He went to Richmond as a quarterback and has limited baseball experience. He also nursed a muscle strain this spring. Because he can't sustain his stuff for long periods, he projects as a closer. He has the right mentality, as he's an intense competitor who welcomes pressure situations.
