Scouting Report

7/02/20

6-foot, 170-pound right-handed-hitting corner infielder and pitcher. Strong, compact frame that he’s added some substantial strength to. Washburn is also one of the youngest incoming senior prospects in the class. Another prospect on this roster who is earning some 2021 draft interest. Took the ball against PTA Cardinal on Saturday night and came out hot, sitting 86-88 mph, touching 90 a few times; some heaviness to it with life in the zone. Went to what was, in all likelihood, the tournament’s best breaking ball – an 11/5 curve with biting action, consistently sharp, with spin that topped 2,600 RPM, according to the radar gun. He punched out seven in his 4.1 innings of work.
