No. 9 Austin Elliott

Austin ElliottRHP Austin Elliott (Cape Henlopen, DE) was another young talent to jump onto the PBR Maryland scene at our first event, the Maryland Preseason ID. Elliott showed off his two way ability at that event but has since continued to progress even more on the mound this spring and summer. He played a big role in Cape Henlopen's deep run in the Delaware state tournament to the championship game.

This summer Elliott pitched with the Evoshield Canes and continued to help his stock rise showing projection on the mound and pitching up to 88 with more in the tank. He has held on to the Top spot of the PBR Maryland class of 2018 rankings since its initial release and is currently ranked No. 57 in the Overall rankings.

The video and scouting report on Elliott is the pitching portion from the Maryland preseason ID.

Scouting Report

2.21.15 - Austin Elliot is a 6-foot 170-pound RHP/OF.  An already athletic body, Elliot pitched at 84 mph from a high 3/4 arm slot with quick arm speed. He displayed smooth rhythm and had good downward action on his fastball. His changeup had near fastball arm action with some sink and he had good command of the pitch. He did not show a breaking ball as it was still early in his bullpen schedule. As he gets more consistent at repeating his delivery, Elliot will project to be a highly ranked prospect as a pitcher. As a position player, Elliot showed a clean and loose arm action from the outfield and carry on his throws at 78 mph. At the plate he had a balanced and athletic set up with a gap-to-gap swing. His exit velocity was 80 mph and he ran a 7.39 60 yard dash.
