2017 Western PA Top Prospect Games Analysis: Red Team (Pitcher Onlys)



By Greg Williams
Pennsylvania Director of Scouting

The summer rush of PBR events in Pennsylvania continued this week with the 2017 Western PA Top Prospect Games on July 18 and 19. 55 prospects from across the state gathered for two days of games and showcase activities at the Iron Horse Sports Complex in Windber, PA. Today we begin our analysis of the prospects in attendance by taking a look at those that participated as pitcher onlys as a member of the Red Team.

Red Team (Pitcher Onlys)

Dawson Magar, 2018, RHP, Donegal HS (PA)
6-foot, 180-pounder sat 83-85 our a a high 3/4 arm slot with a deliberate, compact delivery.  Held velocity for three innings of work striking out three and walking just one.  Curveball continues to be a promising out pitch with tight, 2-plane break at 71-72.  Changeup is stiff and lacks much movement, but could develop into a solid third offering.  Uncommitted senior is athletic and should continue to develop additional velocity as his frame continues to fill out.  

Zachary Mollick, 2018, RHP, Hempfield Area HS (PA)
6-foot-1, 175-pound uncommitted right-hander sat 70-73 from a high 3/4 arm slot over three innings of work.  Curveball displayed looping 11/5 action at 57-60.  Slows delivery considerably on his changeup at 55-56.  Solid frame and balanced, repeatable delivery could lead to velocity gains moving forward.  Displayed solid command and an ability to induce ground balls and soft contact.

Cameron Czerwinski, 2019, RHP, Red Lion Area HS (PA)
Solidly built 5-foot-11, 170-pounder.  Commanded four pitches from a high 3/4 arm slot over four innings of work.  Recorded four strikeouts while walking one batter and allowed just three hits. Displayed a quick arm with late life to his fastball at 82-84.  Curveball shows 11/5 rotation with 2-plane break at 69-71.  Slider has late bite at 75-76 and changeup is thrown with fastball arm speed at 75-76.  Athletic, balanced delivery projects for more velocity to come.  Definite follow among right-handed pitchers in this class.
