The Colorado Rockies made Moll their third-round pick out of Memphis University this year after he went 9-3 with a 2.30 ERA as a junior. He also had an eye-popping 103 strikeouts for the Tigers, sixth most in school history. Moll can touch the mid-90s with his fastball and mixes in a slider and a developing change-up. Last summer for the Brewster Whitecaps of the Cape Cod League, the southpaw walked just two batters in 32 innings. In his professional debut Monday, Moll tossed three scoreless innings in a 7-5 Dust Devils’ win.
