Whitlock was an unheralded 17th round pick in 2017, though he’s on the radar now after a breakout first full pro season that saw the righty pitch his way to Double-A Trenton. His fastball works in the 92-to-94 mph range with above-average armside run, able to rack up ground balls when he pitches to contact. The primary off-speed is a mid-80s slider that’s especially tough to righties from Whitlock’s funky delivery and closed front side. His changeup lags behind the fastball and slider, thrown too firm in the high-80s and speeding up bats. He could finish a #5 starter or interesting multi-inning relief candidate.
