A smallish righthander with plus velocity, Corey Black gains most of the attention he earns thanks to that triple digit hea, but he does have a reasonable changeup to go with it. His slider and curve are very much works in progress, however. If he can improve his breaking balls, he could blossom into a good rotation candidate in a couple of years. If not, he still has power relief potential.
