Ryan Arrowood has really blossomed for his new team. Taken in the 28th round of the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft by the Coloardo Rockies last season, Arrowood has moved his way up the ranks.

He's currently a member of the Asheville Tourists in the Class A South Atlantic League. Arrowood, a right hander from Union Mills, N.C., is 3-0 with a 3.19 earned-run-average. He has made 14 appearances and he has started one game.  Arrowood has given up 12 earned runs in 32.2 innings of work with ten walks and 37 strikeouts. Opponents are hitting .254 against him this season.
Arrowood, who played at Appalachian State University, was 4-3 with the Tri-City Dust Devils of the Rookie Class A Northwest League last season. He gave up 13 earned runs in 51.2 innings with a 2.26 ERA. Arrowood walked 14 with 55 strikeouts. Opponents batted .205 against him.
Arrowood was 11-0 in his final season at ASU. He gave up 42 earned runs in 99.1 innings with 39 walks and 93 strikeouts. In his career, Arrowood, who played at R.S. Central High, is the winningest pitcher in school history with 28 victories. He surpassed Matt Andress (2007-10), who originally held the record with 26 wins.
Arrowood was 8-3 with a 2.96 ERA over 94.1 innings his junior year. He became only the second Mountaineer pitcher to ever win as many as eight games in back-to-back seasons, joining Kevin Simmons who accomplished the feat in 1985-86. His eight victories were tied for the second-most in single-season school history. Arrowood registered 83 strikeouts that season in 94.1 innings. And the 83 strikeouts rank second in ASU single-season history. He was named second-team all-Southern Conference by the league's media that season.
Arrowood defeated Oklahoma 5-4 in his final appearance for the Mountaineers at the Charlottesville Regional in Virginia. He went 7.2 innings and gave up an earned run on two hits with three walks and nine strikeouts.
