Associate Head Coach/Pitching Coach Alan Dunn on Chase Costello:
"Chase is a very athletic pitcher with a high 80s to low 90s fastball. He has good arm side life and a solid late slider with depth for his put-away pitch. He brings an excellent mound demeanor and competiveness that should allow him to contribute very early to the pitching staff. As the son of a former LSU Tiger that played for Skip Bertman, he knows what wearing the Purple and Gold is all about."
