MLB.com says this about Dace Kime:

The Pirates drafted Kime out of Definance (Ohio) High School, also the alma mater of Chad Billingsley and Jon Niese, in 2010, but he chose to attend college instead of sign. Kime, a right-handed pitcher, spent much of his career at Louisville as a reliever, but was moved into the rotation in late April. Scouts believe he has the potential to remain a starter as a professional. His fastball sits in the low- to mid-90s and he mixes it with a curveball, cutter and changeup. Kime uses his 6-foot-5, 219-pound frame to get a good downhill angle and creates a lot of groundballs as a result.
