The T24  Scout Day took place on October 16th at Field Day Park in Clover, SC.  The event began with a pro-style workout for all the position players that included the 60 yard dash, BP with TrackMan ball flight analysis, and a defensive evaluation.  Then finished up with the pitchers throwing a bullpen with all pitches being tracked by Trackman. 

Below we will look at the quick hitters from the pitchers for the event.

Very athletic loose quick arm.  Long lanky frame with loads of projection left.  Fastball shows good life on it along with good arm side run.  Shows a good sharp slider with good tilt to it.  Good action on the change up, slows arm down a bit to throw it.

Good quick tempo with an athletic delivery.  Lean frame with more room to grow.  Shows good arm strength with a quick arm and clean mechanics.  Adds deception in delivery with a higher glove side allowing fastball to play up.  Shows really good spin on the breaking ball and feel for a change up.
