Evan Plante, LHP, Christian Brothers Academy, NY (2015)
Plante stands an athletic 6-foot-2 170-pounds with physical upside. On the mound his balance is over the rubber with solid mechanics. Uses a long but clean arm action, high 3/4 slot and a fastball sitting 78-80 mph. His changeup was 65-66 mph slowing his arm some, curveball sat 60-61 with early 1/6 shape out of his hand. He needs to keep his front side closed longer and finish more over his front side with extension.

The 6-foot-2 southpaw from eastern NY is on the verge of becoming a next level guy. Plante, who is already gathering interest from schools, is just starting to hit his stride on the mound. The unsigned senior for CBA has the tools, and projection, college recruiters look for on the mound. A tall and lean lefty, fastball with natural arm side run touching 80 mph, a three pitch mix, and the desire and work ethic to get better. We look forward to seeing his progression in February before the HS season starts.
