The first signing season is just around the corner. Throughout the next week we will be releasing lists by position of players we have video of in the 2017 class that are ranked and uncommitted. Today we focus on the right handed pitchers.

Caleb Sloan, RHP, Regis Jesuit
Rank: 1
Scouting Report: Athletic frame, strong limbs, 6-foot-3, 185-pound right-handed pitcher, has a highly projectable frame. Square delivery, athletic rhythm and balance, easy effort, closed landing, repeats well. Arm action is clean, long arm action, high ¾ slot. Can get even more out of lower half which could add a few more mph. Fastball has slight run, controlled the zone well, 88-89 mph, Showed improved velocity from the winter camps we saw him at (86-87 mph). Curveball has 11/5 plane, slurve action, landed for strikes, good control, 73-74 mph. Changeup has sink, good control and feel for the pitch, 75-76 mph. Weiss showed excellent three pitch feel, high ceiling projects well at the next level, can pound the zone with multiple pitches and change speeds. As a hitter Sloan has  raw gap to gap power backed up with an 88 mph exit velo off the tee. Sloan is a little tight in his load, but swing is level through the zone with good extension through ball. A little bit off balance at times in lower half, and like pitching has more untapped potential with legs. Projects as a solid clean-up or 3-hole hitter as he continues to polish himself up. Also was the fastest runner at the event with a 4.19 home to first time from the right side.
