TN: Fall Prospect Games - Pitchers


Tim Kay
PBR Tennessee Director of Scouting

On September 30th, Tennessee hosted the Fall Prospect Games.  This event included a position player workout, followed by a 10-inning game where each pitcher threw 2 innings. Players were afforded the opportunity to showcase their abilities in front of the PBR Tennessee staff and college coaches in attendance. The following is a look at every pitcher who pitched at the event.

BRICEN RUSSELL / SS / 3B / SUMMIT, TN / 2019

Max FB: 84, FB: 80-84, CB: 67-70, CH: 77
6-foot-2, 170-pound, RHP struck out 1 in his 2 innings of work while showing super projectable frame and arm speed.  Tall, athletic, long and lanky frame w/ well-proportioned lean strength, super projectable.  Has just scratched the surface of his frame potential.  Pitches from a full wind-up into H ¾ release from the first base side of the rubber.  Super quick arm w/ short arm action in back.  Can get stronger with the glove-side, would help direction to the plate and maintain consistency.  Arm works, just waiting on frame to develop to see velocity match arm-speed.  High effort throw.  Straight FB shows occasional short cut.  Medium downer CB w/ proper shape and rotation when gets on top of the pitch.  Firm CH, buried the only one he threw on this day.  Around the zone w/ the FB, developing control of his secondary stuff.  Tools to command.
