Relief Pitcher | PEI Argonauts
His fastball gets into the high 80s, but it's the sink that makes the pitch effective. OKrey also has a decent changeup. The PEI Argonauts hope he can work on his control a little bit. Every once and a while one slips away from him and either ends up at the backstop or in the right field bleachers. He tends to work slowly when in a jam, which just makes his problems worse by lulling his fielders to sleep. He's almost as effective against lefthanders as he is versus righthanders.
Defense & Hitting
He has a fair pickoff move and isn't a particularly easy target for basestealers. He tends to fall off slightly to the first-base side of the mound, making him vulnerable to bunts toward third base. He makes up for that minor flaw by being aggressive in fielding his position. OKrey is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but OKrey has some pop in his swing. Interesting sidenote, The PEI Argonauts have been known to use OKrey as a pinch-runner on occasion.
The PEI Argonauts signed him to a long-term contract, but don't think they won't drop OKrey like a hot potato if something better comes along.
