Florida Underclass Games: Left Handed Pitching Analysis

By Rob Sidwell
Florida Scouting Director

Gainesville, Fl. --- Yesterday we broke down the right handers from the Florida Underclass Games and today we take a look at the left handed pitchers. This a typical example of why left handed hitters and left handed pitchers are more highly touted than their equally talented counterparts. Because there are much less left handers to go around than right handers, as was the case at the Florida Underclass Games.

Left Handed Pitchers (Alphabetical Order)

Jud Fabian, LHP/OF, Trinity Catholic, 2019
5-foot-9, 145 pound lefty with a lean loose athletic projectable young body. Loose easy working arm with a ¾ to low ¾ arm slot. Takes ball out slightly past hip with a slight wrist wrap in back. Lands in line. Fast ball has run and sink at 74-77 mph. Curve ball is a big loopy ¾ breaker with good rotation. Good feel for the change up at 71-72 mph with the same fast ball action. A lot of upside for this young projectable lefty.

Dawson Fietsam, LHP/OF Trinity Christian Academy, 2019
5-foot-7, 145 pound lefty with a very young body on a medium frame. Lean, athletic, projectable. Long loose arm at a high ¾ arm slot. Good rhythm in delivery. Hides ball in back. Lands in line. Fast ball has arm side tail and glove side cut action at 68-70 mph. Curve ball is a big loopy downer at 72-64 mph. Change up is 63-64 mph but slows down a bit to throw it. Will improve with reps. Overall stuff will improve with physical maturity. Right now is a crafty lefty that throws his fast ball and curve for strikes.
