Notes: Litsch tries to be too fine at times. He has moved move quickly since signing as a draft-and-follow out of junior college. However, he hit a wall in double-A as he learned he cannot be in the strike zone so much against better hitters. The Rockies tried to sign Litsch as 37th round draft-and-follow in 2003 and considered redrafting him before the Jays took him. He overmatched Appalachian League hitters in his debut with four pitches and excellent control. Litsch goes straight after hitters with 88-92 mph fastball, 84-86 mph slider, which has plus potential, and a fading change. He also has a solid-average curveball. He is aggressive but tries to be too fine at times. Needs to through more on a downward plane. Litsch appears to have similarities to Syracuse pitcher Josh Banks.
