Garrett Mock

Right-handed pitcher

Age: 24

Height: 6-4

Weight: 225 pounds

Born: Camp Wood, Texas

College: University of Houston

Draft: Selected in the third round in 2004 by the Arizona Diamondbacks

How acquired: The Nationals picked up Mock on Aug. 7, 2006 in a trade with the Diamondbacks, along with minor league pitcher Matt Chico, for pitcher Livan Hernandez.

2007 statistics: 0-2 with a 4.70 ERA in 3 starts and 7 2/3 innings pitched with the Gulf Coast League Nationals; 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in 1 start and six inning pitched with the Class A Potomac Nationals; and 1-5 with a 5.79 ERA in 11 starts and 51.1 innings pitched with the Harrisburg Senators.

Minor league totals: 25-28 with a 4.48 ERA in 82 starts and 464 1/3 innings pitched.

Personal: Played for a junior college All-Star team in 2002, when he was at Grayson Community College for one year, against a Japanese team. … drafted twice (out of high school and after community college) but went back to school each time before the Diamondbacks selected him in 2004.

Nationals scouting report: “Big, strong power arm with four pitches. He has been slowed down some because of injuries but look for him to bounce back this year. He had a good fall pitching in the Arizona Fall League. He throws four pitches for strikes. His fastball is 92-95 miles per hour. He throws two breaking balls, a curveball and slider, as well as a changeup. He has a chance to be a power starter in the Major Leagues very soon.” — Nationals farm director Bobby Williams
