Austin Scouting Roundup

AUSTIN, TX - As we move forward this spring, PBR Texas has been scouring the state with our "Grass Roots" scouting staff. Here are some notes and video from the last two weeks. 

Lake Travis vs. Westlake (3.14.19)

Jimmy Lewis, RHP, Lake Travis, 2019
LSU commit. Currently ranked No. 6 in Texas and No. 24 in the country. 6-foot-6, 210 lb, projectable frame. Very simple, repeatable delivery with not a lot of moving parts. Ball comes out of his hand without much effort at release. Working from a high 3⁄4 arm slot, his fastball sat 90-92 and touched 93. Creates big tilt on his fastball. Held his velocity well throughout the majority of the outing. Also featured a tight curveball at 76-77 with 11/5 shape. The right-handed hitter also had a huge two-run single for LT. 

Brett Baty, INF, Lake Travis, 2019 
Texas commit. Currently ranked No. 3 in Texas and No. 10 in the country. 6-foot-3, 210 lb frame, present strength throughout. It is easy to see why Baty’s bat is often regarded as one of the top in this year’s draft class. Using a very quiet load, his bat is very quick through the zone. He shows the ability to create backspin and damage the ball to all parts of the field. Moves well at third base and his throws across the diamond show above average carry on them.
