Round 2- Kevin "Honor Boy" Slowey
Round Two for the Evil Dead was definitely going to be a pitcher said manager Mark Ewing. The Evil Dead settled on Right-handed pitcher Kevin Slowey. Slowey attended Winthrop University. Kevin scored very high on his SATs, but the Evil Dead could care less. Slowey has excellent control and is often compared to Brad Radke. Bert Blyleven, the Dead pitching coach said, "His fastball is slow, but I guess it works for him, since he doesn't walk too many guys. I think he might give up a ton of homers though. " The Evil Dead want Slowey to eventually become a starter, but he may have to go out of the bullpen this year. Slowey is predicted to pitch around 67 innings this year.
