Uncommitted Spotlight - '22 RHP Casey Sabiers (Bishop Blanchet)


Dan Jurik
Scouting Director - Pacific Northwest

Earlier this Fall we had the chance to gather a strong group of uncommitted '22 and '23 prospects from WA and OR to compete against each other down at Goss Stadium on the campus of Oregon State University. The day kicked off with an indoor workout and then concluded with a controlled scrimmage. 

PBR events events such as this provide players with the opportunity to build their profile with the most up-to-date information and video footage. All players in attendance receive an online profile with their verified statistics, player report, picture and video. Additionally, all subsequent stories written about a prospect will be linked to the player’s profile, ultimately creating a one-stop shop for recruiters.

Showcases help identify which prospects have asserted themselves towards the top of their class as well as who might be one of the next youngsters to emerge onto the scene. They also serve as potential identifiers for invite-only events such as our Future GamesJunior Future Games and West Coast Games

Scouting Report

10/24/21

6-foot-9, about 205-210 lbs with a high-waisted frame and highly projectable build. Sabiers will head into the 2022 season as one of the top remaining arms in Washington that are still on the board. Mechanically, he moves well through his delivery and doesn't seem to be inhibited by some of the downfalls that normally plague taller arms. His transition from high leg lift into stride has consistently developed into a smooth operation and he does a solid job of controlling his center mass into foot strike. Features a shorter stride length for his height which helps him stay behind the baseball and avoid rushing down the slope. The arm works continuously out of hand break with fluid action. Shoulder line stays level throughout and keeps his alignment working towards his target. Hand stays behind the baseball and helps him drive everything downhill from a 3/4 slot. Rotates well around his front hip and braces up his momentum to help him get additional extension. FB continues to find the bottom 3rd more often and he pairs it with an 11/5 CB and emerging CH. The CH especially has shown progress and features hard, late tumble when thrown at its best. We've seen him run the FB up to 85-86 at his best and there's plenty of reason to believe more velocity will emerge in 2022. Overall, the chance to stick as a starter and control a 3-pitch offering should keep plenty of eyes on Sabiers when he toes the rubber again next spring.
