Swales had originally signed with the U of Arizona and with the backlog of rosters at D1 programs, due to eligibility being restored throughout the country, he decided to take his arm to CSN and get quality inns against wood bats at the JC level. A tightly wound 6-2 195 with a prototype pro body, the delivery is sound, with his hands and knee lift carried up top and syncs his lower ½ when right. Some tall and fall type finish, that with better use of his lower ½, 100 MPH is in reach for him, as he continues to fill and mature. The arm works properly and the FB 94-96 comes out clean with EZ gas. Looks as if he’s just playing catch. The CB 79-83 has top to bottom tight spinning depth and bites through the zone for a potential 60 offering. The CH 83-86 has feel, yet just needs to refine and use more, as most pitchers his age do, as his FB/CB combo can wipe hitters out at his current and past levels of play. Look for big area scout/cross checking interest, as well as higher ups in the scouting community to watch intently come spring, as his arsenal has a chance to be 1st day or early 2nd day draft type consideration.

Swales continues to impress on the mound where he flashes an easy, loose arm and a three-pitch mix that has the attention of schools across the country. Seems to have shored up some balance issues he was showing at Area Code Games this summer and is landing inline more with greater balance. Fastball shows more consistent sinking action in on righties while his late showing, sharp slurve is a perfect backdoor pitch to lefties.
