Baseball Wiki

Keith William Landers (born November 12, 1989 in Worcester, Massachusetts) is a college starting pitcher playing for the Louisville Cardinals. He was drafted in the 18th round of the 2008 Amateur Draft by the Baltimore Orioles, but decided to attend college instead. His fastball can reach the low 90's and he has shown the potential to throw a nasty slurve. The 6'7 left-hander interested scouts because of his size and potential, but is considered very raw. He bats and throws left-handed.
