Interview Conducted November 14, 2010

 
Steve Geltz has had to overcome many obstacles on his path to becoming a Major League pitcher. At 5’10”, he didn’t quite reach the magic height that scouts look for in a pitcher. Coming out of college, he wasn’t drafted. But, he didn’t give up on his dream.

Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2008, Geltz has been dominating as a reliever for the Angels. In 2010, he posted a 14.87 K/9 IP rate combined at two different levels. But, that doesn’t tell the whole story. After his promotion to Double-A Arkansas, Steve posted a 17.36 K/9 IP rate and lowered his BAA to .145! Considering that he accomplished that against tougher pitching, he had an exceptional season.

This fall, the Angels sent Geltz to the Arizona Fall League to continue to refine his game. He has continued to excel against the elite prospects in baseball, and is establishing himself as a strong candidate for a bullpen spot later in 2011. For a complete look at his current stats, click here.
