Alec Zumwalt Report

Alec Zumwalt, RHP, Milwaukee Brewers
Drafted 144th Overall (4th Rd), 1999 Draft, HS, Kernersville, NC
Bats R/Throws R
25 YO, 6'2", 190 lbs

Zumwalt was the player to be named in the Kolb/Capellan deal. He's a former outfielder and was a Rule 5 pick by the Rays that didn't stick.

Zumwalt's a reliever with a pretty decent low 90's fastball, but he's still pretty raw. After a good 2003, he struggled a lot in 2004 with a 5.09 ERA, 67 K's, and 38 walks in 76 innings. His command needs to improve, especially on his secondary pitches. He doesn't have a whole lot of time since he's already well into his mid 20's.

ETA: 2006
