Quick Hitters - Pitchers

 

Owen Bellamy (RHP, Croatan HS, 2022) – Loose arm working to a ¾ slot with the fastball peaking at 82 with big run out of the hand.  Matches the fastball with a breaking ball that sweeps with large length through the zone, peaking at 66 and spinning on average at 2408rpm.  Solid feel for the zone.

Kaden Ferrell (LHP, Wilson Prep, 2024) – Strong arm from a long, loose action working to an over-the-top slot.  Tight 2/8 breaking ball spinning at 1560rpm, up to 67.  Fastball up to 75 with some run and an 11:00 spin tilt out of the hand. 

Aaron Holley (RHP, DH Conley HS, 2024) – Strike thrower with feel for all three pitches.  Athletic 6-foot build.  Fastball up to 79, spinning up to 2218rpm.  Good arm speed on the breaking ball with 10/4 tilt and early action that should continue to mature.

Gage Lockhart (LHP, Wilson Prep, 2024) – Average frame.  Still maturing.  Plunges out of the glove working to a high-3/4 slot with above average arm speed for the age.  Loose and easy through release.  Fastball at 75 with solid ride through the zone.  Run and feel on a change-up that has some deception with good arm speed.

Matthew Lovitt (RHP, Jacksonville HS, 2022) -- 1 day removed from a HS football game.  Athletic frame.  Up to 80 with the fastball.  Sink metrics, but worked elevated with the fastball.   Early 10/4 tilt, but sharp bite on the breaking ball at 68-70, spinning up to 2181 rpm.

DeAndre Sellers (RHP, Wilson Prep, 2025) – 5-foot-10, 150 pounds.   Long arm swing with better than average arm speed.  Slight cross-fire action with his foot-strike.  Fastball up to 75, spinning up to 2126rpm.  Sharp, 10/4 tilt on a breaking ball that peaked at 62.  Showed feel for the change-up.

Dylan Waters (RHP, Terra Ceia, 2024) – 6-foot, 163 pounds.  Lower slot guy, working from a low-3/4 to a sidearm release.  Fastball worked up to 74.  Solid feel for his curveball at 64.  Early sweep with length across the zone.  Average feel and arm speed on the changeup.
