Quick Hitters - Pitchers
Landon Garry, RHP, Heritage HS, 2024
Average frame, standing 6-foot-2, 195 pounds. Raw delivery with motion side to side over the rubber. Coils around the back hip, working level and landing back on-line. Long arm swing. Elbow works above the shoulder line as he gets to the cocking phase. High-¾ slot. Average to above arm speed. Slinger type whip. Fastball peaked at 83.2, 2522rpm. Solid ride with heavy run, averaging 17.2in. 1:45 spin tilt at release. Slider has late depth, exploding away from RHH as it enters the decision zone. Slider sat 69-70, 2596rpm, peaking at 2626rpm. Heavy horizontal action late with good depth. Slider should give hitters a lot of issues when thrown around the zone.
Jackson Rowlands, RHP, North Raleigh Christian, 2026
Thin frame at 6-foot, 155 pounds. Long arm action, plunging out of the glove. Works back to an over-the-top slot. High front side with some uphill leverage through the shoulders. Lands on-line with an open toe at foot-strike. Fastball ranged 75-77, 1654rpm with average ride and some run out of the hand. Good feel for a short breaking ball with 11/5 tilt peaking at 67.6, 1758rpm. Change-up is thrown with solid arm speed, turning it over through release to get fade through the zone at 68-70, 1800rpm.
