Underclass Prospect Spotlight: 2013 Roscoe Blackburn

Roscoe Blackburn, LHP/OF, Thomas Worthington, 2013: Talented two-way prospect with a lanky, projectable athletic frame. On the mound, he uses a high 3/4 arm slot and short arm action. He shows command of a 81-84 mph fastball with slight run. His 69-70 mph curveball needs to be developed. It shows early 1/7 bit, but lacks consistency. He also uses a 73-75 mph straight changeup. In the field, he moves well. On his throws, he has a tendency to open his front side early, which takes away from his accuracy and potential velocity. His velocity from the outfield topped out at 79 mph. at the plate, he showed a balanced approach with average to quick bat speed. He is a line drive hitter with power potential. He ran a 7.00 60-yard dash on a slow track.
