Josh Cordova, LHP, Klein Collins, 2019
Uncommitted. Estimated 5-foot-10, 165 pound, wiry frame. Left-hander with a slow delivery to the plate from the windup. Fastball sat 78-80, touching 81. Was 1.3 home-to-plate from the stretch with a slide step. Would also use a high leg kick with runner on 1st to keep them off balance as well. Curveball had some slurve action to it, ranging from 67-71. Induced plenty of soft contact and bad swings on the curveball. At the plate, short, compact left-handed swing with good opposite field approach. Ranked No. 216 in 2019 PBR Texas rankings.
