Stock Report: 2014 RHP/1B Michael Adams

The Cumberland Valley HS baseball team had nine seniors on its roster in 2012 and two juniors off that roster, Matt Davis (VCU) and Hunter Schryver (Villanova), have already signed with Division I programs. Sophomores on the 2012 roster had to fight for every at bat or inning in the field they could get.

Michael AdamsMichael Adams, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound RHP/1B, did just that in a solid sophomore campaign. The big right hander got his feet wet on the varsity mound in 2012 and was named to the Patriot News Underclassman Team and the Carlisle Sentinel All-Star Team.

Adams showed a great deal of promise at the Eastern PA Top Prospect Showcase in August. He topped out at 84mph with a heavy fastball. Adams has excellent mechanics that are repeatable. He also showcased control of a 66mph curveball, a 72mph changeup with arm side run and a 72mph slider. His curveball has good 1/7 rotation and could become an out pitch with additional work.

Offensively, Adams showcased one of the best bat exit speed velos of the day at 85mph. He displayed a short swing path resulting in line drives to all fields with some gap power. He also demonstrated the ability to make all plays at first base. Adams could be a two-way player to watch in the Class of 2014.
