10/14/18 - 6-foot-3, 200-pound prospect. Worked out in the outfield and on the mound. Clear future on the bump. Has always intrigued with his physical presence, strong lower half and short, clean arm action. He has battled some inconsistencies in the past, but if this performance is any indication he has absolutely turned the corner and was without a doubt the breakout performer of the entire event. Utagawa pounded the zone with a heavy 84-87 mph fastball, tight 73-74 mph curveball and flashed a 76-77 mph changeup that has the look of a solid third offering. He was completely under control during his bullpen and if this sort of stuff/command continues D1's will be lining up to sign the Ivy-level student. Line drive hitter. At the plate has a strong lower half, hangs and sits on load. Calm and consistent approach. Stays inside balls well. Ran improved 7.46 60-yard dash.6/5/18 - 6-foot-3 200-pound frame. Tall, strong build with thick lower half. Interesting combination of skills posting an 88 mph exit velocity while also throwing 85 mph off the mound, but Utagawa’s future appears to be on the mound at this point. At his best, Utagawa’s fastball ranged from 80-85 mph with downhill plane and some life to his arm side. Impressive arm spiral and arm speed. Lead leg hyper extends into ball release causing back hip to pop up. Change up was thrown at 71-74 mph with some fading action. Curveball worked 67-69 mph. Continued development of the secondary will help further solidify Utagawa’s prospect status. Also posted a 7.45 60-yard dash and 82 mph infield velocity. Projects as a first baseman defensively.
10/29/17 – 6-foot-3, 200-pound frame with broad shoulders and a developed lower half. Two-way player showed best on the mound with an ideal pitcher’s body. Compact, on-line delivery with short, clean arm stroke. Gets on top of the baseball quickly in back with short action and just above ¾ slot. Fastball sat 80-82 mph, touching 83 and was mostly straight. Breaking ball pops up out of hand at 65-67. Changeup flashed fading action from 67-71. Offensively, hits from relaxed setup with low hands and easy rhythm. Uses lower half well with aggressive backside, turning in 88 mph exit velo. Arms works well at 1B with 75 mph velocity and short action. Tends to field the ball deep with some stiffness in hands. 7.76 60-yard dash.
