Ohio Top Ten Breakdown: Top Viewed Prospect Profiles - #9 Treyben Funderburg

Treyben Funderburg#9 Treyben Funderburg, SS/RHP, Beavercreek, 2017 (Ohio commit)
Scouting Report: 5-foot-11, 150-pound athletic frame. An intriguing 2017 prospect on the mound. Throws from multiple arm slots in his delivery which creates a great deal of deceptiveness. Delivery shows some effort to it. Long loose back arm action. Fastball sits 83-86 mph showing some run when he drops down. Curveball sits 68-72 mph with sharp 10/4 break. Changeup sits 75-76 mph. A switch hitter that generates more energy and batspeed from the left side but is more efficient from the right. From the right side he uses a toe turn/bat tip for his load before taking a flat path to the ball. Was able to produce consistent line drives in batting practice with some pop off the bat. From the left side he uses a leg kick to start his lower half before a controlled stride forward. Hands stay simple before getting the bat through the zone on a level path. Struggles to produced backspin from the left side. Had a top exit velocity of 80 mph from the right side and 85 from the left. Ran a 6.94 60-yard dash. His best attribute in the infield is his impressive arm strength as he topped out at 87 mph across the diamond. Average hands at this stage. Feet move quickly but could be more efficient with his angles.

Overview: In 2016, the two-way prospect sits at the 66th spot in the state prospect rankings. The Beavercreek product had a strong spring performance for the Beavers while also showcasing well at the 2016 Top Prospect Games in June. Funderburg later committed to the Ohio Bobcats. The senior will look to be one of the top players in the state in his senior year this spring for Beavercreek.
