PBR Future Games Spotlight: SS/RHP Joey Butler



Name: Joey Butler
High School: Minooka HS, IL
Class: 2016
Position: SS/RHP
Height: 6-2
Weight: 170

Butler has legitimate two-way potential. He has an impressive frame, standing at 6-foot-2, 170 pounds with plenty of projection. He stands on the first base side of the rubber and throws slightly across his body, but it doesn’t affect his command. He pounds the zone from a slow, deliberate delivery with a pause at his balance point. His arm is free and easy from a high three-quarter slot and he can sit 81-83 mph. His curveball shows 12-to-6 action, sitting at 70-71. His changeup sits 74-75 with arm-side sink. He hits from a balanced set-up with low hands, but quietly raises them in his load and keeps them inside the ball.
