Prep Baseball Report Oklahoma hosted the second annual OK Preseason All-State Showcase this past Sunday at the World Baseball Outreach indoor facility in Tulsa, OK. This invite only event featured 90 of the top players from every class in Oklahoma. Each player participated in a pro style showcase to show their skills and record measurables in front of multiple colleges along with the PBR staff.

This was easily the most talent packed event in PBR OK history with 16 players posting 90+ exit velo, 16 players that were 85+ on the mound, 10 sub 7.00 60s, 9 catchers under 2.0, a 90 across the INF, and a 100 from the OF. 

In the coming weeks, PBR OK will write an in-depth scouting report on each player at the event grouped by position and age. Today, we look at the right-handed pitchers from the 2021 class. Though many of them are talented two-way players, they will be cover here only as pitchers with positional analysis to come later.

2021 Right-Handed Pitchers

Morgan Lunceford RHP / 3B / Shawnee , OK / 2021

A lean 5-foot-10, 165-pound frame with room to add strength. On the mound, works from an up-tempo delivery. Uses an athletic wind-up that he repeats well, stepping straight back with this rocker step and brings it through building momentum to the dish. Arm action is full in the back with a quick change of direction before coming through a high-¾ slot. Four-seam fastball sits 82-83 mph with some downhill tilt. Two-seam fastball also sits 82-83 with arm-side run. Curveball shows 11/5 shape with depth and flashed late action, 67-69 mph. Slider shows consistent 10/4 shape with good depth and tight spin. Changeup has late fade and occasional sink, 75-76 mph. Shows an advanced feel for the zone with all five pitches. Overall, Lunceford’s quick arm and feel for pitching will continue to draw attention from colleges as he grows. 


Carson Hunt RHP / 3B / Dale, OK / 2021

A physically advanced 6-foot, 190-pound frame with strength. On the mound, works from an average tempo delivery, using a high leg kick with a slight coil before gliding down the mound. Arm action has length in the back with a small circle before coming through a high-¾ slot with some arm speed. Fastball keeps its plane at 80 mph with above average feel for the zone. Curveball sits 65-66 mph with some tight spin and near 12/6 shape, mostly strikes, some arm side misses. Changeup is thrown with near fastball arm speed and shows consistent arm-side run, 73-74 mph. Overall, Hunt is a prospect to watch has his command has continued to improve and it looks like there will be more in the tank. 


Jaxon McTyre OF / RHP / Sallisaw, OK / 2021

A lean 5-foot-10, 175-pound frame with room to add strength. On the mound, works from a slightly up-tempo delivery with a high leg kick and quality leg drive down the mound. Arm action has moderate length and a clean circle in the back before coming through a high-¾ slot with some arm speed. Fastball keeps its plane at 78-80 mph, advanced feel for the zone. Curveball shows near 12/6 shape with depth at 62-64 mph, some strikes. Overall, McTyre is another arm that school will follow closely as he grows due to his well above average arm strength and athleticism. 


Brody Rexroad 3B / RHP / Mustang, OK / 2021

A proportional 5-foot-11, 183-pound frame. On the mound, works from a slightly up-tempo delivery with good rhythm. Uses a high leg kick before striding down the mound and finishing inline. Arm action is full, loose, and fluid in the back before coming through a ¾ slot with ease. Fastball sits 78-80 with occasional cutting action and good feel for the zone. Curveball shows 11/5 shape with above average spin, some strikes, 67-68 mph. Changeup shows some cut at 74-75 mph, controlled around the zone. Overall, Rexroad’s stuff and command has continued to progress with his frame, with more ahead of him. 


Gray Thomas RHP / 3B / Casady, OK / 2021

A long and projectable 6-foot-2, 175-pound frame with lots of room to continue to add size and strength. On the mound, works from an average tempo delivery with a moderate leg kick with some coil before dropping and driving down the mound. Arm action is full, long, and loose behind him before whipping it through a low-3/4 slot with advanced arm speed. Fastball sits 84-86 with late and heavy consistent sink, almost all strikes. Slider has late and sharp 10/4 shape with tight spin, thrown with full arm speed, 74-76 mph, spins out at times. Changeup shows excellent late skin at 79-81 mph with advanced control. Overall, Thomas is an elite level arm with a feel for pitching for his age with more room to grow and improve. 


Parker Whittle RHP / C / Regent Preparatory, OK / 2021

A durable 5-foot-11, 190-pound frame with some strength. On the mound, works from a controlled delivery with an up down and out leg kick before pushing down the mound with good leg drive. Fastball sits 77-80 mph with some downhill tilt and arm-side run, mostly strikes. Changeup shows some fade, 68-69 mph. Slider has good depth with 10/4 shape and is thrown with near fastball arm speed, 69-70 mph. Curveball is still developing, near 12/6 shape with rolling action, 60-61 mph. Overall, Whittle has a fast arm and feel for pitching that will make him an attractive prospect in the years to come.
