Kunz is poised to take a more prominent role in the defending National Champion Oregon State Beavers pitching staff now that Dallas Buck, Jonah Nickerson and Kevin Gunderson have advanced to professional baseball. Kunz established himself on the Cape last summer, using an extremely heavy mid-90s heaters to miss a lot of bats if not induce a lot of weak ground balls. His big, strong durable frame and his heavy fastball could be better suited to a starting role if he can develop his secondary offerings, but at this point in time his breaking ball and changeup are no more than show-me pitches. That said, his fastball, given the velocity and movement, are good enough for him to flourish as a closer or set-up man, and as noted he's durable enough to throw more than just one inning at a time and/or on short rest.
