Kumar Rocker - Prospect Profile

Prospects Live - Mar. 18: "Fastball command still isnít a plus, but itís looked markedly improved in 2021. Even when the fastball isnít on, his feel for the slider allows the luxury of going full-on slider dominant for a night."

Michael Dault - Through The Fence Baseball - Mar. 13th: "Heís not a magician or even a technical pitcher. Heís a work horse. The one concern is if he will only rely on his velocity to get batters out. Because, if so, heíll be on a fast track to the bullpen rather than a starting role."

Kiley McDaniel - ESPN - Feb. 26th: "[His fastball is] in the mid-90s (up to 98 mph) with a plus slider, usable changeup and solid control, but scouts want to see more precision in his command and execution."

R.J. Anderson - CBS Sports - Feb. 15th: "The downside to him already looking the part is that teams have concern about his long-term body maintenance. There are other, more pressing considerations to navigate here as well. Despite the raw velocity and improving metrics, his fastball's results have underwhelmed dating back to his high-school days."

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - Jan. 26th: "Rocker has shown an above-average changeup in the past, but scouts want to see it improved this spring and like many college pitchers he doesnít use it frequently, instead opting for his fastball or slider. After missing a start last spring scouts will want to see him fully healthy and starting over the full season."

Ian Smith - Prospects 365 - Nov. 8: "The Vanderbilt ace presents the most ready MLB body and arsenal as we stand right now, led by a plus fastball sitting in the high 90s with a wipeout slider that could grade out to be a 70-grade offering."
