Kunz is a relief pitcher, who either could be a closer or setup man in the future. He has a sinker-slider package he pounds to righthanded hitters. He throws what is described as a heavy fastball that sits in the 90-94mph range. He keeps it down in the zone with some average sink on it. His sliders sits in the low-80's with short late break on it. He should get a lot of groundballs with his arsenal. He's 6'5" and weights 250lbs.
Vineyard is a 6'3" lefthanded pitcher out of Woodland HS in Emerson, GA. His out pitch right now is his slider and has a chance to have a good three pitch mix with his fastball and changeup. His fastball sits anywhere between 88-91mpn. Nathan aggressively attacks hitters and has good athleticism on the mound.
The Mets lost pick 29 to the Giants for signing Moises Alou, so their first pick didn't come until 42. As with 2005's drafting of Joe Smith, Edward Kunz is a large (6'5" 250 lbs) reliever out of college who could possibly ascend to the majors fairly quickly. Kunz had 32 K's in 33 IP as a reliever for the Beavers, but scouts say he needs a better third pitch if he wants to be a major league closer rather than a set up man or a right handed specialist.
