 June 13th Pitchers

JAMES SELLS / RHP / 2B / FRANKLIN COUNTY, TN / 2021

Max FB: 88, FB: 83-87, Avg FB: 84.41, CB: 71-74, CH: 79 
6-foot-0, 171-pound, RHP recorded the top velocity we have seen from a 2021 arm w/ an idea of how to pitch.  Medium, athletic frame w/ some present lower half strength, projectable.  Pitches from a full wind-up into ¾ to H ¾ release from the third base side of the rubber.  Super quick arm w/ some effort in the throw.  Clean, repeatable delivery, learning to utilize lower half to keep arm on time.  Downhill plane from the H ¾ release.  Straight FB shows occasional arm-side run.  Medium downer CB w/ proper shape and rotation.  Occasional spinner, occasional above average depth w/ some tightness.  Arm lagged behind slightly on this day, made it hard for him to consistently finish like we have seen it this spring.  Mixed in one straight CH that stayed elevated.  Around the zone, sprayed more than we have seen.  May have been a case of nerves with his first showcase and overthrowing slightly.  Projects to command based on control we saw this spring.
