Steven Sanchez, LHP, Mundelein, 2018
Arkansas commit, currently ranked No. 7 in the Illinois’ 2018 class. 6-foot-7, 240-pound, extra-large, well-proportioned, extra-large left-handed pitcher; imposing figure on the mound. Started on the mound for Mundelein, went four innings, gave up one hit, no runs, struck out seven and walked two. Tall and fall delivery, works with rhythm, stays on-line, lands front-foot closed and finishes upright. Arm works short and over-the-top, quick out front. Ability to create extreme angle on his fastball at times. Fastball works mostly straight, occasional cut action, sat 86-87 mph in the first inning and settled in at 83-86 mph. Curveball, inconsistent shape and action; true 1/7 shape and depth when at its best, sat 73-75 mph. Flashed one slider up in the zone at 78 mph. Did not see a changeup in game.
