Chris Resop was acquired by the Angels from Florida on November 20 in exchange for Kevin Gregg. I recorded an interview with him today. Click Here to listen.
Chris pitched in high school, and played in regional tournaments with current Angels prospects Casey Kotchman, Jeff Mathis and Bobby Wilson. The Marlins drafted him as an outfielder in June 2001, but in the summer of 2003 decided to convert him back to the mound.
Three years later, he’s had a couple brief tours in the majors with Florida. Chris said his velocity is now consistently in the mid-90s. He has a slider, curve and changeup in his repertoire.
Listen to the interview for lots more about Chris.
