The Outfield Fly Ruling

A 27th rounder from Davenport, Clouse caught the eye of some scouts, when, over his first 6 2/3 innings of rookie ball, he struck out 16 batters. He has a titillating fastball/slider combo that could be devastating out of the pen if he can ever get the walks under control. There’s potential, but profiles like this flame out all the time, so follow with caution. (- B. Blackwell, 5/17)
