Mutz left NAIA Dakota State after his 2010 season and did not pitch for anyone the following spring. Ric Wilson received a tip on him and brought him into a predraft workout. Mutz threw a bullpen session and that's all Wilson and the Angels needed to see to draft the fireballer in the ninth round of the 2011 draft. After a solid opening act in Orem last season (2011), Mutz was shelled in what was a brief season that ended early due to an arm injury in 2012. In 18 relief appearances, Mutz posted a 11.14 ERA while opposing hitters hit .408 against him.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound righthander has a solid average fastball in the 93-96 MPH range, a good slider that darts away and down on righties and low and in on lefties. Though he's pitched in the bullpen to this point, the Angels like him as starting pitcher going forward. Mutz shows a good feel for his changeup, but it's an offering that still needs work.

Mutz will get another crack in Low-A ball if he's healthy and has a good showing in spring camp. Definitely an arm to keep an eye on going forward as the Angels really like his fastball/slider combo and developing change.
