PITCHERS

Adam Laskey, 2019, LHP (Duke)
Left-handed starter with a strong, athletic frame at six-foot-three, 205 pounds. Compact arm action to a three-quarter release point produces above average arm speed. Repeats simple delivery, landing soft and on-line with good balance and extension out front. Best pitch is a plus changeup. Deceptive, thrown with fastball arm speed. Consistent swing/miss out pitch at 81-84 mph and hard sink. Fastball ranged from 89-92 mph, mostly 90. Sat 88-89 in the fifth inning. Average life with near average control. On this day showed little feel for a 78-80 mph curveball, well below average pitch. However, I saw it much better this spring. Overall, Laskey is a near three-pitch lefty with a starter delivery, arm action, frame and athleticism. Will likely receive early round consideration next June.

 

Nick Mikolajchak, 2019, RHP (Sam Houston State)
Competitive, aggressive closer with three pitches for strikes. Deceptive, different look with low three-quarter release point. More control than command of arsenal...
