BA #219 - Ingram was named the Florida junior college pitcher of the year after going 11-1 with a 1.88 ERA and 120 strikeouts in 100 1/3 innings this spring for the Hawks. That incredible year has made him one of the more intriguing players from the juco ranks, despite not having overwhelming stuff. Ingram’s best pitch is his curveball, which can be a plus offering. His fastball is about average, sitting 88-92 mph and he’ll also mix in a changeup, which has average potential as well. Listed at 6-foot-4, 205 pounds, he has a good pitcher’s build.

MLB #161 - Scouting Grades: Fastball: 50 | Curveball: 60 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 45 - The junior college ranks always produce a fair amount of Draft talent and Ingram was making some noise with a big year at Hillsborough Community College and positioning himself as one of the better JUCO arms available in the class. Ingram was among the national junior college leaders in strikeouts, ERA and wins, riding an outstanding curveball and improved fastball. He'll pitch with an average heater, sitting around 91-92 mph and a changeup that should be Major League average as well. He can really spin a breaking ball and it's an effective out pitch for the right-hander. He's around the plate and has very good mound presence. While Ingram has often pitched out of the stretch, he has the stuff and command to continue profiling as a starter, albeit one in the back end of a rotation.

Ingram maybe a future pen guy?

He sounds more like a starter to me. Average fastball and change to go with a plus curveball. If he perfects the change up, he could easily be a solid major league starter.

This could be a great pick. Sounds like a Colin Mchugh type of pitcher.
