Scouting Report / Bio: Roe is a very intriguing prospect and has all the tools to become a middle-of-the-rotation starter. Roe's fastball has lots of movement and tops out at 95, but he typically works in the low-90s. His best pitch is a sharp-breaking curveball and also throws an average changeup. As he fills out and continues to mature, Roe may add a few more mph to his fastball. He has good mechanics and throws at an over-the-top downward angle. He began 2006 in extended spring training, as the Rockies wanted to closely monitor his workload in his first full professional season.
Future Outlook: Major League starting pitcher
