Comments

Control:Kline's command is average.
Poise:Kline has a bulldog mentality and is not afraid to pitch inside.
Physical Description:Kline has a body type similar to Ryan Dempster.
Medical Update:Kline had "Tommy John" surgery before his senior year of high school, then redshirted for his freshman year and threw sparingly the following year. He is completely healthy now.
Strengths:He has the chance to have a good three-pitch mix. He puts all three together at times and looks fantastic in doing so.
Weaknesses:While his repertoire could all be average, he's not been consistent with them.
Summary:In his first two years at Ole Miss, Kline threw just 17 2/3 innings because of Tommy John surgery before his senior year of high school. He redshirted his freshman year and pitched sparingly the following year. He moved into the rotation in 2006, and now he's going full force. He has the chance to have a decent three-pitch mix with a bulldog mentality, making him an interesting candidate for the back end of a rotation some day.
