College baseball can't work in much of an exhibition season, so starting pitchers are still building up arm strength at the begining of the season.

But Cal's Brandon Morrow seemed to already be up to par in his first start of the season. The junior threw 6.1 hittless innings against UC Irvine (by no means pushovers), walking one and striking out 12.

Athlough his sophomore season wasn't amazing, Morrow tore up the Cape Cod league this summer, giving a lot of followers reason to rank him as one of the best pitchers that will be available in the 2006 amateur draft. Look for Morrow to continue to distinguish himself as one of the best college pitchers in the nation.

His mid-90s fastball and complementary slider should be giving hitters trouble all season long.

In the past Morrow has had control problems which has hampered him. But if he can get control of his pitches he is a kid to watch. I've read he was throwing as high as 98 mph in that game were he K'd 12.
