2021 MLB DraftThe 6-foot, 215-pound Silseth is about as competitive as they come, but battles his command at times. His 93-96 fastball is mostly true and with little life and less than his best command he too often can find barrels with his heater. He has a swing-and-miss breaking ball that ranges from 77-82. He has a third pitch in a better-than-average changeup with super-low spin and tubmle. Silseth is athletic with good feet and a quick pickoff move, and he fields his position very well. After a stellar start for the Wildcats in the College World Series, he proved he can perform on the big stage.

2020 DRAFT: Arizona commit - 6-foot-0, 205 pounds, is a power arm from the right side with a potential plus three pitch mix. His fastball cruises at 92-94 mph and can run in up to 97 mph when needed. He has a wipe out breaking ball that works well off of his fastball and is used as his strikeout pitch, sitting between 81-83 mph. He has an ever improving changeup that flashes some heavy arms side run with late sink sitting 82-84 mph. Silseth uses a polished, rhythmic delivery with some effort, especially when he reached back for the extra mph's, from a high 3/4 arm slot. From the six starts in the shortened JUCO season, he posted a 2.08 ERA, striking out 55 batters in his 30.1 innings of work earning a .76 WHIP for the Coyotes. CSN Head Coach, Nick Garritano, praises Silseth’s work ethic and his hunger to continue learning how to pitch and get better in every aspect of the game.�

11/1/19:�A University of Tennessee transfer, Silseth has a strong, athletic 6-foot, 200 pound frame that packs a punch. Consistently sitting 92-94, and up to 97 mph from a 3/4 slot, he also shows great feel for his secondary pitches, especially his changeup which has above average depth and fade. Silseth uses his three pitch mix keeps hitter off balance with the confidence to throw any pitch in any count. He has committed to Arizona for his junior season.

A physical bodied right-hander, Silseth attended Tennessee as a freshman in 2018-19 then the College of Southern Nevada in 2019-20 where he struck out 55 in 30.1 IP. He battled both control problems and a tight strike zone throughout his most recent start against Oklahoma. Luckily, he pitches for one of the better offensive clubs in college baseball and his 11 hits, 10 runs allowed in 4.1 IP did not end with an “L”. The 6-foot, 215-pounder is about as competitive as they come, but at the end of the day it was just not his day. After battling for 91 pitches, he was chased in the fifth with the Wildcats leading 11-9. Silseth’s command issues were compounded with his true fastball and an inability to go inside to batters. With very little life and less than his best command he too often found barrels with his 93-96 mph heater. His usual swing/miss breaking ball also took the day off, for the most part. He did flash a couple better than average spinners in the 77-82 mph range at times, but the lack of control made it an easy leave for the Sooner bats. His best pitch was an above average, super low-spin tumbling changeup. Silseth is athletic with good feet and a quick pickoff move. He also fields his position really well. Currently ranked at No. 94 in the college class, this equates to the back end of the 4th round, which is a solid spot for consideration at this point in the season.
