Jim Jarecki, RHP, Marquette University, 2016
Jim JareckiExtra-large frame, 6-foot-7, 220-pound right-handed pitcher, strong durable pitchers build. Tall and fall delivery with some effort, tendency to get underneath the baseball, could create additional tilt. Arm action is loose and clean, ¾ slot. Fastball played at 84-86 mph, touched 87 mph, certainly looks to have more in the tank, worked mostly top half of zone. Curveball thrown with arm speed, 75-77 mph, displayed more lateral action, occasional back-up action. Changeup had advanced action, best secondary pitch, excellent fade an arm side action, 78-80 mph, thrown with tempo and arm speed, good feel for the zone. High follow uncommitted senior with projectable arm action and untapped potential.
