+ RHP Sam Mitchell (Bob Jones, 2023) has began his senior season with multiple quality starts and continued that trend last night, working five no-hit innings and striking out 15 hitters in the process. Mitchell, an Alabama signee, is a long 6-foot-7, 210-pounder that mixed a really effective two-pitch mix for strikes throughout his outing. The senior did an excellent job keeping hitters off-balanced and worked at a fairly quick pace for the duration of his start. Mitchell operated around the 86-88 mph range and touched 89 mph a couple of times in the earlier innings with his fastball, but his calling card was a sharp slider at 73-74 mph that featured late bite and two-plane depth to it. He showed the ability to land it in the zone for strikes early in the count and use it as a put-away offering with two strikes in the bottom of the zone to get chase. Although a big and hard-throwing right-hander, the senior displays excellent pitch-ability and feel for all of his pitches while pouring in strikes at a consistent pace. In a game that was finished in five innings due to the mercy rule coming into effect, Mitchell earned the win going 5 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, and 15 K's on 85 pitches, 59 of which were for strikes.
