An eligible sophomore, Whitlock touched 95 mph with sink in the Cape Cod League last summer and has flashed a plus fastball and plus slider at his best. He got off to a tremendous start in 2017 and went 3-0, 0.53 in non-conference games, but a bout of food poisoning that weakened him, followed by a back strain, diminished Whitlock considerably in the second half. Shifting between starting and relieving, he went 0-6, 8.44 in Conference USA play for UAB, pitching with a diminished fastball that topped out at 93 and becoming a flyball pitcher instead of a sinkerballer. If he can regain his lost strength, the listed 6-foot-4, 192-pounder could be an effective sinker-slider reliever in pro ball. He also could re-establish himself by returning to UAB as a junior.
