Jack Mahoney, RHP, St. Viator, 2020
South Carolina commit, currently ranked No. 1 in the Illinois’ 2020 class and No. 58 overall. 6-foot-1, 170-pound, right-handed pitcher, long athletic frame, broad shoulders with room for continued physical development. Started on the mound for St. Viator and continued to solidify himself as one of the top 2020 prospects in the Midwest. Highly-athletic on the mound, advanced mound presence, works quickly, competitive and showed a three-pitch repertoire; all three offerings have plus potential in the future. Athletic delivery, slight drop and drive, strong at balance point, utilizes lower half, works with rhythm, repeats and stays on-line. Arm works short, clean and uninterrupted on the backside; quick and loose out front, comes out of a high ¾ slot. Fastball, thrown for strikes, worked primarily away to hitters, gets late run and occasional sink, life through the hitting zone. Flashed tilt when down in the zone and also has ability to elevate with two-strikes; sat 88-89 mph, touched 90 in the first inning.
