2021 MLB DraftKrob is an athletic, aggressive lefty with a compact and quick arm action. His fastball can bump 93, but sits mostly 88-91. He pitches from a 3/4 slot and lands slightly closed, producing good angle to the plate, especially with his well-placed four-seamer. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound also has a power slider in the low 80s with hard, late break. It's a present swing-and-miss pitch that should continue to get better over time.

Athletic, aggressive lefty with a compact and quick arm action. Krob’s fastball ranged from 89-91 in the first inning, and bumped a couple of 93s in the second before settling in 88-90 for most of his four inning, one hit allowed start on Monday. With a three-quarter slot and a slightly closed landing, he produces good angle to the plate, especially with his well-placed 4-seamer. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder also featured a power slider in the low-80s with hard, late breaking action. It’s a present swing/miss pitch that should get even better with time. High performing lefties don’t last long in the draft and Krob is likely no exception.
