Top Viewed Profiles of 2019

No. 4 Seth Keener

Seth Keener (RHP, East Surry HS, 2020) jumped onto the scene at an open ID in the Fall of 2018.  He continued to see his stock climb throughout 2019 with a standout performance at the Preseason All-State followed by a very good spring where East Surry sat inside the PBR Power 25 for much of the year.  At the State Games of North Carolina Keener continued to impress with electric stuff and good feel for three pitches.

As we enter 2020, Keener, a Wake Forest commit, will be a follow for MLB Scouts.  He is scheduled to attend the PBR NC ProCase on February 9th.  Below is the full profile on Seth Keener.

Scouting Report

1/27/19

 

Strong defined lower half in a 6-foot, 175 pound frame.  Fastball bumped 90, sitting 88-89.  Late action.  Ball jumps.  Long, loose arm swing and quick hand get to a high-3/4 slot.  Simple delivery that coils around the front side at balance, while settling on the back side.  Lands a full stride across his line, with loose hips firing his front side back into his direction.  Lacks some extension as the body is spinning over the front side at release.  Downer breaking ball at 74-78.  Erratic at times, it is hard and thrown with conviction.  Change-up has sink from a slightly slower arm speed, touching 79.  The looseness and whip in the hips and arm create a sense of a very high ceiling.

 

 

10.13.18

 

 

Athletic frame with a high waist at 5-foot-11, 170 pounds.  Looseness in his hips and a strong front side.  Average to slightly above leg kick working to a slight crouch with the fronts side closed.  Rotates through the lower half with some speed and power, landing square and across his line.  Long, loose arm stroke to a high-3/4 slot.  Quick hand through release.  Powerful finish, slightly rotational in the upper half, but with great energy and balance through the lower half.  Fastball sat 86-88 with run and sink.  Heavy life bored into the catcher’s frame.  Lots of strikes with the fastball.  Breaking ball is a bit inconsistent but should continue to mature.  11/5 tilt when on time with it, sitting 67-69.  At times around as the upper half can get rotational.  Has feel for change-up at 73-74.  Sink and fade with fastball hand speed, attacking the zone.  Frame can continue to fill out and stuff should continue to tick up.
