Coming into the season, Ecker was the second-best reliever in a power-packed Aggies' bullpen. When Ryan Hendrix struggled to find his command, Ecker emerged as the team's closer in part because he learned how to dial back his stuff. As of late May, Ecker was 4-2, 0.45 with five saves and an impressive 46-3 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 40 innings. Ecker learned that while he can touch 100 mph when he airs it out, he gets better movement and command at 94-96, touching 97. That lively fastball combined with a much-improved average changeup. In the past Ecker didn't have the conviction or control of the pitch, but he has shown the ability to throw it for strikes this season. His breaking ball is a distant third pitch, but he doesn't need to use it that much.
