Walter on Peluse
"Colin had a great freshman campaign and has emerged as a weekend rotation power arm - he's likely to be our Sunday starter. Colin features a good downhill fastball in the low-to-mid 90's and a slider that at times is a wipe-out pitch. He also features plus command. I can't imagine too many Sunday guys in the country better than Colin."
