Anyone got the scoop here? He throws 97 with a 87 mph change. Shunned the Nationals. My kind of guy. He's a Senior now. He had to transfer to a JUCO for some reason.

I'm guessing the Os scout saw him on March 23rd against Mississippi State in a 11-2 blowout game when he struck out the side in the one of two games he pitched all year. Looks like he was mainly a nondescript outfielder. Maybe they saw a big kid with a good arm and took a flier on him in the 37th round? He apparently was a pretty good pitcher in high school but I have no idea why he really never pitched much in college.

According to the Sun, Bleeker signed and will start his career in the outfield although he will work wit the pitchers in the instructional league. Not real sure why they would mess around with Bleeker as a position player because clearly they saw something with his size and arm on the mound. I expect he'll be transitioned full-time to the mound by next season.

He didn't like pitching and would have been behind our deep pitching staff anyways. I thought he looked good in the one inning i did see him pitch lol. plenty of potential. He had a strong arm in LF for us and some power at the plate, but he won't be good enough there at the next level to play OF full time imo. Could be a decent pitcher though
