CA STATE GAMES:

Positional Profile: RHP
Body: 6-1, 170-pounds. Has a lean athletic frame that definitely shows some strength/physical gains since the last time we saw him.
Delivery: Uses a higher knee lift and sequences his body well dropping into his back leg before driving off the rubber. Pulls down hard with his glove and finishes with a firm and stable front leg at landing. Sound mechanics.
Arm Action: RH. Has a more over the top arm slot that is clean and repeatable. Full and long arm swing that is loose but still creates a ton of arm speed. Consistent arm speeds on all pitches.
FB: T90, 87-89 mph.  Located it well to the glove side. Pitch shows good ride with very minimal horizontal movement.
CB: 76-78 mph. Played well in the zone. Same arm speed as FB.
SL: 79-82 mph. Worked it to all quadrants. Most used offspeed. Induced week contact. Above-average spin 2300-2500.
CH: 81-82 mph. Low spin changeup: 1200 spin.

at Hart (Winter Game) -Starting for Harvard-Westlake and getting his first innings of the Winter, Becerra looks like the type of pitcher that could be counted on in Spring with the frame and pitches having the space to make continued jumps. The one inning outing saw Becerra work with three pitches including a Slider that will be a future swing and miss pitch. The overhead delivery allows him to find his footing before bringing the hands back to the waist with a high front knee adding deception to the delivery as he rides the back hip down the hill. The arm is loose with a quick, full swing through the H-3/4 slot allowing him to finish out over the strong and firm front leg. FB 83-85 showing slight cutting action and flashing times of better angle to the glove-side. CHG 80-82 was heavy with straight, small actions; times where he choked the pitch, but when allowing it to work showed good action. SLD 72-74 with tight 3/4 bend having it’s best action showing late darting depth; that variant got his 1 K on the outing and flashed above-average actions.

Uncommitted. Becerra got the start in the first game of the night for Pacific Baseball Academy, and showcased an 82-84 fastball that jumps, some, out of the hand, and countered it with a quality changeup (75-77) that he showed excellent feel for, and induced swings and misses. Wiry-thin at 5-foot-11, 160-pounds, he utilizes a simple, compact delivery with a fuller arm stroke before striding slightly open and delivering out of a high ¾ slot with impressive extension out front. His slider was more of a developing pitch in the low 70s, but he exhibited the ability to land the pitch for a strike. Working quickly, Becerra is calm and confident on the mound, and should see an uptick in velocity as he continues filling out. He tired, some, late and left the ball up which found some barrels as the fastball flattened out at the top of the zone, but regardless, he is an intriguing arm to follow.
