Griffin Agee, LHP, Jefferson Forest HS, VA
Agee has a long-limbed frame with room for added strength. On the mound, he’s quick and compact with no wasted movement in his delivery. He pitches with regular effort and a fast arm, running his fastball up to 90 and sitting 86-89. The breaking ball is tight with short 1/7 break at 75.
