Believe O'Neil will be an under slot senior sign. College Reliever in the 90-92 range

This is why he's a draft expert, folks.

Let's see them take a real shot at McConnell or Mitchell or Hurt, all of whom obviously have strong college commits.

Astro has video up of him if anyone's interested. He basically just throws slider after slider, high 70's.

Hits 90 and 91 on the two fastballs he throws.

Has a nice K rate. Set a saves record for his college team. Tigers drafted him last year, 32nd round as a Junior.

But all the articles just talk about his stats, ERA, Saves, blah blah. No scouting info.

I'm thinking he's a 10K guy too. Maybe 5K.

In all seriousness there are a few videos out there and he throws 90% sliders in them. Throw a Kiko Calero or Michael Wuertz on him.

O'Neil played at Central Arizona JC for one season before transferring to Cal State Northridge. He became the Matadors' all-time career saves leader with 39. O'Neil was drafted by the Tigers in the 32nd round after his junior year but returned to school and had his best year yet as a senior, going 5-4, 2.70 with 35 hits allowed in 50 innings. His fastball tops out at 92 mph and he serves hitters a healthy diet of sliders to get his outs. O'Neil also has a curveball and changeup that he can mix in to keep hitters off-balance. He commands the strike zone, reads swings well, manipulates the ball as necessary, and stays composed on the mound. O'Neil isn't flashy, but his track record, deep arsenal of pitches and makeup make him an interesting bullpen option.

Kiko Calero was a Met at one point, was he not?

O’Neil’s fastball sits 87-92 MPH. Unlike most pitchers who use their fastball as their base, O’Neil pitches “backwards,” throwing his breaking ball more than his fastball. His bread-and-butter pitch is a high-70s slider that grades out as above-average by most scouts. In addition, he also throws a changeup that flashes some promise—showing a decent amount of tumble—and a curveball. He is able to command all of his pitches well. He has a knack for reading hitters and adjusting his game plan from pitch to pitch, turning to whichever offering suits his need at the moment based on how the hitter is performing.

O’Neil throws from a high three-quarters arm angle. His delivery is simple and deliberate, leaving him in good fielding position.

MAYBE if you squint hard enough you have a slider specializing middle reliever here?
