2007 5th Round Pick Connor Graham

Connor Graham

RHP, Miami U. (profile)

HT: 6'6" WT: 233 lbs.

2007 Stats: 13 APP, 13 GS, W-L 5-4, 80.2 IP, 80 H, 43/38 R/ER, 34 BB, 76 K, 4.24 ERA, .261 BAA

Bio: Entering the 2004 draft, Graham was set on going to college. He served as the closer for the Red Hawks and saved four games. He struck out 42 in 32 innings. He moved into the rotation last season (a rotation that included Keith Weiser), but also pitched six times in relief. He struck out 41 in 46 innings and walked 25 batters. After entering the rotation full-time this season, Graham had a decent 2007 campaign, but showed the scouts he had the ability to be a top-five round talent.

Commentary: Graham works with a fastball usually in the low-90's and also uses a slider and a change up splitter. He's a candidate to anchor a rotation in one of the short-season leagues.
