Seth Lonsway vs DefianceName: Seth Lonsway
Position: LHP
Class: 2017
High School: Celina
Height/Weight: 6-foot, 165-pounds
Ranked: 13th in 2017 class

Scouting Report: 6-foot, 165-pound athletic frame. On the mound the southpaw has a slow tempo delivery with good direction. Throws from a high-¾ slot with his fastball sitting 85-88 mph with some cut to it. The fastball topped out at 89 a few times in the first inning and stayed in the 85-88 range throughout. He uses a breaking ball with good depth and 1/7 action at 69-71 mph. The southpaw tried to keep the opposing offense off-balance with a change the he mixed in a couple times at 74-75 mph with so arm-side run and dip. Seth did not throw a slider against Defiance but showcased a slider with side-to-side action and late break at 72 mph at the Western Winter Showcase. Four-pitch lefty that was impressive at the showcase in the Winter and has already showed development and improvement. Will be interesting to see how he progresses, definitely one to keep an eye on.
