The 6’1 right-hander posted a 4.93 ERA as a sophomore in 2017, with 72 strikeouts and 33 walks in 95 innings.
Ottesen is a draft-eligible sophomore as someone who went on a two-year Mormon mission in Japan after high school in 2013.
Lynn Worthy of the Salt Lake Tribune profiled Otteson on Sunday, with this tidbit from a scout:
"He's got arm speed. You can't teach that," said one former professional scout who has watched Ottesen pitch since high school. "A guy is just born with that arm speed. And you know what? Everybody is looking for power arms, and he's a power arm. I saw him his last outing against Arizona State, and he was 94 to 95 [mph] in the seventh inning and he was right close to 100 pitches. The other thing that shows that he has arm strength is he's 94, 95 out of the stretch."
