2020 Border Battle Pitchers


Tim Kay
PBR Tennessee Director of Scouting

On October 13th, the University of Kentucky hosted some of the top 2020’s from the states of Tennessee and Kentucky to play against each other.  Players participated in a showcase in the morning, including defensive evaluations and BP before entering into two 10 inning games.  The weather had an impact on the day, as temperatures hovered in the low to mid 40’s with consistent cloud cover.  Many of the pitchers and position players have posted better measurables during the summer and this fall in better conditions, which makes the big numbers posted by some of the players jump out even more.  Read up on every pitcher who attended on Saturday in the 2020 class below!

JAKE FITZGIBBONS / LHP / MT JULIET, TN / 2020

Max FB: 86, FB: 82-85, CB: 63-67
5-foot-10, 155-pound, LHP struck out 4 in his 2 innings of work, generating 4 swing and misses on 13 swings against his FB.  Medium, athletic frame w/ some present lower half strength, projectable.  Has just scratched the surface of his frame potential.  Pitches from a full wind-up into H ¾ release from the third base side of the rubber.  Up-tempo delivery w/ some effort.  Short strider.  Super quick arm, ball gets on you as a hitter.  Angle.  FB shows short arm-side run.  Big downer CB w/ proper shape and rotation.  Flashes, has a chance to be a put-away pitch L on L.  Around the zone w/ the FB, struggled to get a feel for the CB.  Projects to command.
