Skulina had aspirations of going in the first five rounds as an Ohio high schooler in 2010, but a back injury and his Virginia commitment dropped him to the Athletics in the 46th round. He spend just one semester with the Cavaliers before transferring to Kent State, helping the Golden Flashesmake their first-ever College World Series appearance last June. He has been inconsistent this spring, allowing 11 earned runs in two innings against Louisville, yet carrying a 95 mph fastball and a no-hitter into the eighth inning against Miami (Ohio). Skulina shows first-round stuff when he's at his best. The 6-foot-6, 225-pounder holds the velocity on a 91-96 mph fastball with tailing action, and he misses more bats with a tight 80-84 mph slider. He also uses a curveball to give hitters a different look and is working on a changeup. His up-and-down season is the product of inconsistent control and command, which likely will make him available in the third round.
