Berry won't overpower anyone with his low-90s fastball, but his ability to command four quality pitches and pound the strike zone make up for a lack of velocity. The Orioles limited him to a series of five-inning starts for much of the season with hopes of protecting his arm after the 22-year-old suffered a strained shoulder in college. He made 20 starts between Delmarva and Frederick before the Orioles switched him to the bullpen to rest his arm. His future could be as a reliever, but he should at least begin 2011 in Bowie's starting rotation.
