Scouting Report

Since making the Team Ohio Future Games roster as a rising sophomore and committing to Kent State, Thwaits has physically developed and quickly become one of the top arms for his class in the Midwest. He was selected for the East Coast Pro team for his region. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound righty has really physically matured putting added muscle and weight on his frame. He shows advanced command of fastball sits in the high 80's to lower 90's, topping out at 94 mph. His fastball is complemented by a sinker, curveball, and changeup. The sinker (86-89 mph) is his go-to pitch as he induces a high rate of ground balls. His changeup is thrown with fastball arm speed at 77-80 mph. His breaking ball shows sharp break at 77-80 mph, but he needs to continue developing consistent command of the pitch. Thwaits posses excellent makeup, carries himself with a calm demeanor on the mound, and shows passion for the game.

6-foot-1, 160-pound thin, projectable body frame. On the mound he maintains balance throughout his delivery that requires regular effort. He lands in straight line at foot strike, and finishes carrying his momentum toward home plate. He throws using quick arm speed coming through a ¾ slot. His fastball was between 84-86 mph with cutting action at times. His curveball was between 67-68 mph with gradual break at an 11/5 plane. He threw his changeup using fastball arm speed between 75-76 mph.
