2/15/20:Athletic at 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, Vander Kooi was super efficient during his Saturday afternoon start against Villanova. He pitched to contact throughout his 7.2 innings on just 80 pitches. He sat 88-90 mph with his fastball, touching 92. Both his slider and changeup were delivered in the same velo band of 81-84 mph. He took the tough luck loss, allowing only one earned run on six hits with two walks and five punchouts.

10/10/19: A highly decorated two-way star out of Skyline HS as the 2017 Arizona Gatorade Player of the Year, Vander Kooi has put down the bat and concentrated on the mound during his two years at Arizona State. Although he struggled at times on the bump last season (4-4, 5.59 ERA, 95 IP, 111 H, 39 BB, 89 SO) he will likely begin the 2020 college season as a weekend starter for the Sun Devils. At his best the 6'5, 220 pound righty works downhill with a balanced delivery from a high three-quarter slot. His sinking fastball tops out around 94 and also shows a hammer breaking ball. More consistently, Vander Kooi lives in the 90-92 range with his fastball and low-80s with the breaker while possessing the ability to manipulate its shape. At this point he projects as a back end starter and a potential Top 5 round talent for the 2020 draft. However, with his physical size, athleticism and remaining projection, he could be just one spring season of continued good health and consistent high performance away from jumping into early Day Two conversations.
