PBR Future Games Recap: Team PA Pitchers

By Greg Williams
PA Director of Scouting

Team Pennsylvania carried four pitcher onlys on its roster at the 2014 PBR Future Games. Following is an analysis and highlights of each prospect's performance during the course of their trip to Indiana this past week.


Peyton ReesmanLHP Peyton Reesman (Mifflin County), 2016

Reesman is a 6-foot-5, 215-pound lefty that showcased a big upside topping at 86 mph. The junior appears to still be growing and finding his body physically with the potential for significant added velocity in the near future. Reesman struggled with command at times, but when he found his arm slot he displayed late life to his fastball from a 3/4 arm slot and his 77 mph curveball showed good depth. He worked three innings over two appearances allowing three hits while striking out two.

RHP Zach Schultz (Indiana Area), 2016

Zach SchultzSchultz was the only member of Team Pennsylvania to have made a college commitment prior to the event (Kent State). The 6-foot, 175-pound righty sat 84-86 striking out two during two innings of work. Shultz has a repeatable, high knee delivery and also showcased a 72 mph curveball and an 80 mph changeup. The junior worked through some bad luck, allowing a couple of fisted singles, but showed his ability to make quality pitches with runners in scoring position as a result.

RHP Casey Vincent (Eisenhower), 2016

Casey VincentVincent was originally scheduled to work three innings over two appearances, but ended up working two additional innings during his second appearance. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound righty got stronger with each inning he worked. Vincent topped at 87 mph during his second appearance while also commanding a 73 mph curveball with tight 11/5 rotation. The junior has a long arm action and some hip coil to his delivery that provides added deception. Vincent also displayed supreme confidence in his stuff and attacked hitters early in the count.

RHP Connor Yoder (East Pennsboro), 2016

Connor YoderYoder impressed sitting 87-89 while commanding his slider at 78 mph. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound righty, ranked No. 9 in the PA Class of 2016, worked three innings over two games yielding just one unearned run. Yoder has a very clean arm action and has a feel for a 73 mph curveball and a 76 mph changeup as well. His physical size and repeatable mechanics project him as a conference starter at the next level with the ability to take a team late into the ball game on a regular basis. Yoder's fastball is heavy and his slider has the potential to be a quality out pitch at the next level.
