We would like to thank all who participated in PBR Ohio's 2019 Scout Day: B2 Bulls / JFG Trials. This was a great opportunity for the class of 2019-2023 prospects to be put on college radars. Many players impressed during their individual workouts at the showcase.

Scout Day: B2 Bulls / JFG Trials - Sneak Peek

The Arms

Mike Beckman LHP / Eastlake North, OH / 2021

Body Type: 6-foot-2, 165-pounds, long levers, room to add muscle and strength.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Throws from a lower ¾ arm slot. The arm action is long and loose. Overall the delivery seems simple and repeatable.
Fastball: Fastball sat in the 75-77 mph range. Showed some sink and fade to the arm side, especially when located down in the zone.
Slider: Breaking ball had a slider type action. Didn’t show a ton of movement on the pitch but it had tight spin and he maintained good arm speed throwing it at 67-69 mph.
Pitchability: Beckman showed good feel for his slider and was able to throw it well to his glove side and backdoor to his arm side. Fastball command was solid but was noticeably better to the arm side where he could accentuate natural sink and fade.
Future Role: Physically not maxed out. Future role will depend a lot how he progresses physically. Definitely room for more velo. Developing a changeup will help him.
