Coach Farley on DePotter: "Evan is one of three pitchers we think could be very effective in a late relief/closer type role. He has above average stuff, and he is very effective when he throws low strikes. His fastball and knuckle curve are both plus pitches. He is one of the seniors we are counting on."
