Here is the scouting report on Blevins from mlb.com:
Jerry Blevins / LHP / reliever
Blevins has a solid four-pitch repertoire for a reliever. His fastball seems to rise as it approaches home plate and he owns a big breaking curve that he can drop in for strikes. Blevins spins a glove side slider to LHs and pulls the string on a changeup to RHs. Blevins pitched collegiately at Dayton. 4/6/11
[fastball(88-92), curve(70-74), changeup(79-82), slider(83)]
Blevins moves to the National league after playing the previous 7 seasons in the Junior Circuit and has compiled one career at bat. Sadly, Jerry struck out in is only plate appearance. Perhaps he can trade that bat for an actual uniform when he gets to Florida.
