Ohio Insider: Great Late Pickup Options

Since the conclusion of the Ohio High School season in June, we have been blessed with the chance to scout so many talented prospects throughout the Buckeye State. There have been 20 showcases since the end of May and we have seen a plethora of talented arms, bats, gloves and athletes.

Below we would like to highlight 10 uncommitted seniors who are looking for the right spot at the next level after performing well this Summer.

Garett Priestley LHP / 1B / Buckeye Senior, OH / 2018

Event Attended: Top Prospect Games, Ohio Premier Scout Day
Scouting Report: On the bump the southpaw has an uptempo delivery that he requires some effort. Arm move through a near high-¾ slot, generating above average arm speed. Works off his 84-87 mph fastball. The pitch will show regular arm side run and he can use both sides of the plate. Offers two different breaking balls. The slider has depth and cuts across the plate at 72-75. Also spins a 2/8  shaped breaking ball at 62-64. The pitch has big, gradual break. Along with the two breakers, Priestley also has a changeup in his repertoire. Showed feel for the offering that has some fade to it at 76-77 mph.
Outlook: The southpaw has the arm talent to be an immediate impact guy at the next level. With his velocity and feel for multiple secondary offerings he likely ends up in a starting rotation before it’s all said and done.
