Scouting Report

1/4/19 - Enrolled at Eastern Florida State College

2/17/18- Mississippi State recruit. Stewart has made a nice jump in velocity while still maintaining his lower effort delivery. The question coming into the night is whether he projects as a starter in professional baseball, or would the plus curveball with a spin rate over 3000s, lead him to the pen. From the looks of things he will get every opportunity to start. He works under control, with a quiet head and repeats well. He shows above average command of the fastball that sat mostly 91-93 touching 95 mph, which is a nice jump from the fall. He has a great feel for his plus curveball at 79-83 mph, not only having swing and miss ability, but can also throw it for strikes. He flashed he occasional changeup at 81 mph, but didn’t need anything other than the fastball/curveball combo on the night. Stewart was impressive, and on a good night to do so, which should lend him to a rising stock through the spring.

08/20/17- Mississippi State recruit  who currently stands at 6-foot-5, 190 pounds with a tall, long-limbed, projectable frame. From a high ¾ slot he shows a fastball ranging from 89-91 mph touching 92 that works downhill with some late life. His curveball is one of the best in his class as a true swing and miss pitch that sits at 77-79 mph with shape and depth. He has consistently shown the ability to throw the breaking ball for strikes and is considered one of the top arms for his class.

12/12/16- Committed to Mississippi State University.

10/23/16- The 6-foot-5, 190-pound Stewart is one of the top uncommitted right-handers in the country, as he offers tantalizing upside with present stuff. His fastball velocity ranged between 87-89 mph, but his curveball is a true swing-and-miss offering. At one point, Stewart struck out three straight on his 73-75 mph breaking ball, one of which had an above-average spin rate of 3,296 . His curveball has depth and he threw the pitch for consistent strikes. In four innings, he allowed two hits, one run, struck out five and walked three.

10/08/16- Uncommitted 6-foot-5, 190 pound right handed pitcher was very impressive. He is long limbed and extremely projectable with a present clean and easy arm action. From a high ¾ slot he showed a fastball that ranged from 87-89 mph touching 91 mph with some The fastball works downhill with some late life and as he continues to utilize the lower half more it would not be surprising to see a big jump. The most impressive thing is how much better the breaking ball has gotten. He always showed a good shape with spin, but it has really turned into more of a slurve with late depth and is an above average pitch. After an impressive performance, the projectable righty will not be uncommitted long.

6/27/16- Uncommitted. Big, strong 6-foot-5, 200-pounder was impressive, showing an 85-87 mph fastball early in his outing and  settling in around 84-86 mph. Stewart had late life on the fastball and has a simple delivery with an easy arm action. Expect him to make a jump as he continues to log innings.
