Brian Slocum - I just have to ask...

Hi all -

I saw Brian Slocum pitch against the White Sox today, and was wondering if anyone could supply some info on him (I thought of this board because indiansfan seems to know everything about Indians prospects!)  

It appears this guy dropped off of most prospect lists, after being highly touted out of college a few years ago (he went 63rd in 2002).  Baseballhq.com mentions him as an afterthought in the Cleveland organizational report, but he's not in John's book or the BA book.  I also see that he had a reasonable season in Buffalo, despite being a bit old (or at least not young) for the league.  What do people think of his upside?  Is he destined to be one of those guys who bounces around in "low-leverage relief" roles, sometimes starting games when needed?  Or could be become better?  He strikes people out, gets grounders, and doesn't allow gobs of homers, which is usually a good combo.

Thanks!
