Ontario Insider: 2017 ProCase - Sneak Peek (Arms)

By Chris Kemlo and PBR Staff
Ontario Scouting Director

We would like to thank all who participated in PBR Ontario's 2017 second annual ProCase this past Thursday. This was a great opportunity for players to showcase their skills in a workout format, followed by 10 innings of live game action in front of MLB scouts from over 20 plus teams, as well representation from the Canadian Junior National Team.

The ProCase is designed to give professional scouts a look at the top candidates in the senior class for the coming MLB draft in June, as well help with their follow lists for the coming 2018 and 2019 draft class.

In the coming weeks, we will be adding and updating profiles for each of the players in attendance, including complete analysis and video.

Visit our scout blog, which includes velocity, pop times and in-depth scouting reports. The blog will be updated throughout the entire spring, with information on top prospects and top performances, click here.

Ontario Insider: 2017 ProCase - Sneak Peek (Arms)

Although the conditions were not ideal, players were still able to put up solid numbers and showcase their tools and talents for the 20 plus MLB organizations on hand as well as representation from the Canadian Junior National Team.

Below we take a look at some of the arms who stood out on the day.

Landon Leach, RHP, Toronto Mets, 2017
Scouting Report: Leach threw 3 innings and was dominant to say the least in his first two. The third inning he lost his fastball command a little bit but was able to harness himself and get back on track to strike out the last hitter he faced with a 92 mph fastball. Leach was 91-94 on the day and was consistently 92-93 for the majority of his outing while touching 94 in all three innings. In total he struck out eight hitters of a possible 14 and walking only three. The slider worked from 82-85 mph with nice tilt and late action and getting swings and misses while the changeup was limited, he did throw one that had sinking action and resulted in a swing and miss. Leach threw with the same easy and repeatable actions we’ve come to know, and his pitches had good downward angle and threw quality strikes on the day.
