3rd round pick: Mike Wright, RHP, ECU

I have seen him live in the Cape League with Harwich, soley as a relief pitcher.    He has a very live fastball with solid movement and can reach into the 96/97 range.  I consdered it his only plus pitch and only pitch of quality at the moment.  He has a potential three pitch repitore that could move him into a starter role, which he did this past season at East Carolina.  I like the fact you can get a guy that can still scratch potential and grow on his 6'5" frame that could gain another 15-20 pounds as a professional.  I feel in the bullpen, he could mimick Dan Klien's style advancement to the Orioles in short order.
