Baseball America’s draft database reports 19th round draft pick RHP Kevin Vance has signed. Baseball America’s scouting report says:

Closer Kevin Vance performed well in the Cape Cod League for Chatham last summer, impressing scouts with a fastball that touched 94 mph. He showed similar velocity during UConn’s scout day and intrasquad workouts, sitting 90-92, but during the spring he has mostly been in the 86-90 mph range. Vance still was one of the Big East’s top bullpen arms, registering 12 saves and holding opponents to a .105 average through his first 23 appearances. He flashes an above-average curveball with good shape and a decent changeup. When he’s on, scouts said Vance looks like Ricky Bottalico, though the drop in velocity could hurt his draft positioning.

Here are his College Stats:
