Moskos stands to be the best left-handed pitcher drafted out of Clemson since Tyler Lumsden, a first round supplemental pick in 2004. Moskos, like Lumsden, throws hard for a lefty, sitting in the 89-92 range as a starter and reaching the mid-90s as a closer. His stuff is nasty when used in short stints, with excellent movement on his fastball which is complemented perfectly by a wicked slider. He is expected to be moved back to the starting rotation next spring given his promising third pitch, a changeup, but many believe his stuff is too nasty as a closer to move him. Moskos has a strong and compact build, and could excel in either role. Either way, lefties that throw as hard as Moskos does are hard to come by, and he should be a lock for the first round as long as he continues to stay healthy.
