2016 Cleveland Indians 31st-Round Draft Pick (932nd Overall)

Walter on Farish
"Last year Chris was a durable bullpen arm who we brought in‎ when we needed a strikeout. He has never been short on stuff with a fastball up to 95 and three swing-and-miss off-speed pitches. This year his role will depend on his command and consistency. He could find himself in the same role as last year, or he could find himself in the rotation."
