Dustin Kellogg

The Astros recently signed their 34th round draft pick Dustin Kellogg last week. I had the chance to talk with one of his high school coaches at Caney Creek this past weekend and found out a little bit more about him. His four-seam fastball sits in the range of 91-93, but does not have much movement with it at all. He also throws a two-seam fastball 88-90 with a little movement, but not as much as you would like to see. He has an above average curveball for a high school pitcher. He has tried to work on developing a changeup, but that is still a work in progress and is his least developed pitch. He mainly likes to work off his four-seam fastball, and uses the curve as his out pitch. Talent wise the sky is the limit for the kid as he is tall (6ft4), and still very projectable. The trouble for him has always been his attitude. He was a very dificult kid to coach and was often in trouble. When things were going his way on the mound he was very tough to beat, but whenever the firstsign of trouble showed up he would usually give up and back down from the situation. All in all this was a pretty low risk high reward type draftpick, and I'm glad that the Astros were able to sign. Hopefully the coaches in the system will be able to fix his attitude which is leave the Astros with a decent prospect on their hands.
