Cecil, along with Daniel Moskos and Cole St. Clair, gives the '07 draft class three promising lefty closer prospects from the college ranks. Cecil is the biggest of the three, with a strong and powerful build and a bulldog demeanor to match. He pitched extremely well on the Cape last summer, posting a 40 to 9 strikeout to walk ratio over 29 innings of work while notching 11 saves, which came after him saving 13 games for the Terrapins during the spring. His fastball sits in the low-90s, and touches 96. In addition, he has a deadly mid-80s slider that gives him a true one-two knockout punch ideal for the closer's role. There are some concerns about his conditioning and his armm action, but since he is used in short relief, those concerns aren't as great.
