Voelker shined as a closer for Des Moines Area CC in 2012 and in his first season at Dallas Baptist. At 5-foot-10, 182 pounds, he figures to return to a relief role in pro ball thanks to his 5-foot-10, 182-pound frame. He shifted to the rotation for the regional-bound Patriots in 2014 and performed, going 9-4, 3.16 in 91 innings entering regional play. His quick, clean arm produces premium velocity in shorter bursts, with a fastball up to 96-97 mph that usually sits 92-94, though it's quite straight when elevated. His hard slider lacks consistently but can be an average pitch with late action when he stays on top of it.
