Colorado Insider: Under the Radar 2016 Pitchers

John Cackowski
State Director, Colorado

Recently PBR Colorado put out its first 2015 and 2016 player rankings. With any list that has to deal with rankings there will always be discussion and opinion. In our 2015 list we ranked out to 35, and in our 2016 list we ranked out to 40. We will be expanding both of these lists to 50, 75, and 100 as we get a chance to see more players in events and games.  Below is a list of some 2016 pitchers who could move up in our rankings. We will be updating our rankings after the 2/22 Preseason All-State Event.

Nick Morris, RHP, Grandview High School, 2016morris
6-foot-5, 180-pound right-handed pitcher, with room to grow on his frame.  A very projectable pitcher who maxed out at 83 mph during the Fall Prospect Id.  The tall right hander had good command of all four pitches and had command of both sides of the plate.  Fastball was consistent at 81-83 mph, a 68-69 mph curve with sharp 11-5 break and a 71 mph change with good downward movement.  The  fourth pitch was a 69 mph slider with good late break.  Morris delivers the ball from a high 3/4 arm slot with a long loose arm that creates good whip.  Lower body stays in-line and on plane through the delivery.
