Thursday, July 29



Blake Schultz, RHP, Clear Springs HS, 2018
Louisiana Lafayette recruit. 6-foot-1, 180-pound frame. The right-hander works from a high-¾ slot and has a repeatable delivery. His command was on point as he carved for the four innings we saw him. His fastball sat 88-89 mph and he locates it to both sides of the plate. His changeup has arm side fade and depth at 78 mph. He throws a curveball at 75 mph with 11-5 shape with good depth, and a slider at 79 mph with tight spin and late life.


Armani Sanchez, RHP/SS, Heights HS, 2019
Oklahoma recruit. 6-foot, 180-pound, athletic frame. The right-hander works from a ¾ slot with a clean, easy, whip-like arm action and repeatable delivery. His fastball was 84-87 mph, topping out at 88 mph with the ability to add and subtract throughout his outing. Sanchez has excellent feel for his curveball that he can add and subtract to as well. He will drop it in for a strike at 71-73 mph and can finish with a sharper version at 76. Sanchez had outstanding feel for both the strike zone and the ability to spin his breaking ball. Look for him to add velocity as he continues to learn to use his lower half in his delivery.

J.J. Goss, RHP, Cypress Ranch HS, 2019
Uncommitted. 6-foot-2, 168-pound, lean, projectable frame. The right-hander entered the game for one inning of relief to close out a win. He works from a high slot with a long arm stroke. His fastball jumped out of his hand at 88-89 mph, topping out once at 90 mph. His slider has short, late break at 77-78 mph with 11-5 shape. He threw two changeups with fastball arm speed at 82 mph. Look for big things from Goss for the rest of the summer.
