2019 Carlsbad left-handed pitcher Drew Sommers is listed at 6-foot-1 180-pounds and is committed to Central Arizona College. Big and bulky with present strength and broad shoulders. Worked out of the stretch the entire outing with limited pre-pitch movement. Comes set with his front leg crossed over in front before a ninety degree leg lift and slight turn enabling him to create pre-pitch deception. Features a short fast whippy arm path that looks natural and easy on his body from a three-quarter arm slot. Balance and landing were consistent and inline with his target. Struggled at times to land before he threw causing inconsistent command leading to three wild pitches. Arm slot, deception and whippy arm action, make him very hard to pick up from the left-handed hitting vantage point giving him an advantage in those matchups. Fastball ranged from 86-90 mph and showed significant arm side run that was to such an extent that the catcher could not handle the movement and mishandled ten pitches. Best off-speed offering was a 2/8 plane breaking ball with tight spin and present swing and miss capability ranging from 73-76 mph. Off-speed was released with the same arm path, speed and slot. Pre-pitch deception coupled with the same release point as the fastball enables the present swing-and-miss capability and gives it a chance to become a plus off-speed offering down the line.


Big left-handed pitcher with fastball velocity that has significant movement along with a good off-speed pitch will make a welcome addition to the Central Arizona pitching staff. Based off stuff and projection, could see him as a two-pitch reliever with increased velocity that will cause left-handed hitters fits in a matchup driven college and professional game.
