Demel has shuffled between the rotation and the bullpen, at least up until his very successful stint on the Cape during the summer of 2006. He was very well known in high school given his electric stuff: A very good low to mid-90s heater and a wicked curveball. His smaller stature generated a few comparisons to Roy Oswalt, but his size made some scouts a little leary about spending an early pick on him. He has very good athleticism, and repeats his delivery well. He misses bats very well, but his control can struggle and he can be hit, and hit hard, as shown by the 17 collegiate home runs he has allowed. He was named the 13th best prospect on the Cape last summer according to PG Crosschecker.
