Righthander Blake Forslund pitched at 92-95 mph in the fall, but inexperience and a knee injury made for a disappointing spring. A redshirt sophomore, Forslund made a single one-inning appearance for Virginia in 2009 before transferring. He sat out 2010 and was thrown right into the fire this season, but he struggled with his command and went 1-2, 8.31. He also missed time with the knee injury and threw just 22 innings. At 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, he has good frame and power stuff and can get his fastball into the mid-90s. But he doesn't work off his fastball enough and has a tendency to leave his pitches up in the zone.
