Paul Mainieri on Brandon Nowak:
“Brandon was another pitcher we recruited late in the process and we were very fortunate to land him following the draft. He has continued to show improvement over his two years in junior college as he continues to grow into his body. He has a loose arm action with a wiry body. His lower arm angle gives his fastball some arm-side run. His slider is sweepy with good action, and I could see him being especially tough on left-handed hitters. When he displays good command and attacks the zone, he is very capable of striking out hitters with a great deal of frequency.”
