2023s To Know

Nathan Rode and PBR Staff

The initial 2023 Overall Rankings will be posted soon, so PBR state directors submitted a top prospect to know from the class for the lastest Hotlist.

Kyle Connelly, RHP, Clayton Valley Charter HS, CA
Connelly has a compact, athletic build with a strong lower half at 5-foot-10, 165 pounds. He pitches from a high-3/4 slot with a loose, clean and quick arm action, body control and good timing and direction. The fastball has late life and occasional above-average life to his arm side. He pitches in the mid 80s, topping out at 87, and he does it with ease. He has two breaking balls currently, both with similar shape. The curveball is a bit bigger at 73 and the slider has quick snap at 75-77. The changeup shows late fade in the mid 70s.
