2019 Preseason All-State Showcase Sneak Peek - The Arms


Christian Lothes LHP / OF / Lakewood Hebron, OH / 2019

Report: What a month it has been for UNC Charlotte commit Christian Lothes. Just a week removed from a strong showing at the Super 60, Lothes impressed once again with his performance during the Pre-Season All-State showcase.

The 6-foot-2 lefty recorded the fastest pitch of the event touching 91 mph multiple times while sitting 89-91. The ball explodes out of the hand through a high-¾ slot with late life on the pitch. Lothes can really spin the ball. His 76-78 mph slider is one of the best breaking balls in the state. The pitch is a plus offering working out of the same slot as the fastball with sharp 1/7 break. The final offering was an 83-85 mph changeup. Thrown with fastball arm speed, the pitch dives hard through the zone.

There’s still some projection left here and Lothes is definitely one to keep an eye through this spring as the MLB draft approaches.
