2013 A former Mississippi State Bulldog, Stratton was the club's top draft pick last June. He throws two fastballs, a straight four-seamer at 91-93 mph and topping out at 96 mph, and a two-seamer a few ticks slower. He's willing to elevate the four-seam fastball for strikeouts. His repertoire also includes three secondary pitches, a slider, curveball, and changeup. All three have a chance to be average or better, and his arm action makes them tough to differentiate from his fastballs. The slider is the best of them, grading above-average to plus, but when hitters lay off it out of the zone, it leads to high pitch counts. Stratton is able to get downhill well, and throws with a loose, free, very easy arm action.
