3/07/19

Six-foot-5, 220-pound frame. Mound presence showed confidence and competitive nature but needs to be careful to not show emotions on his sleeve too much at the next level.  Worked efficiently and effectively with a four pitch mix consisting of a fastball, curveball, slurve and change-up. Fluid mechanics showed good balance and rhythm pitch to pitch. Featured a 3/4 release point and an athletic finish with some recoil. Fastball displayed arm side run and ranged from 85-88 mph with average control. Showed a curveball that he relied heavily on as a swing and miss pitch ranging from 73-75 mph. Spin was sharp and broke at a 12/6 plane and really played up when located properly. Displayed a slurve in his breaking ball arsenal that ranged from 76-78 mph on a 11/5 plane and showed less break but more power break action. Showed a change-up with little movement in the 79-81 mph range and acted from the same release point making for a show me change of speeds pitch in his off-speed arsenal. Through 14 innings on the year has totaled 20 strikeouts including 8 strikeouts through 5 innings in his start against Ramona. Relied heavily on the breaking balls to garner swings and misses. Easy to tell that the game plan was to get ahead with the fastball and put away with the breaking ball, which is something that hitters at the next level will pick up on. Match-up highlight was facing Derek Diamond, the number 4 rated player in the PBR California 2019 rankings. Struck him out in his first at-bat, HBP in the 2nd at-bat and walked him in his 3rd. Velocity was a tick up against Diamond and was clearly trying to game up in the games premier match-up. Mature pitcher with a high level of pitchability and a four pitch mix. Breaking stuff could make him a strong asset in a college bullpen where his low velocity could play up in shorter increments. Has the stuff, ability and body to be a starter but would need to make a velocity jump to land in a college rotation.

Uncommitted. Six-foot-5, 235-pounds, extra-large frame that is strong throughout with broad shoulders. Physical throughout body. Klenske showed a loose, quick arm from a full path through to a ¾ slot. Effort is regular and finish is balanced and athletic with the occasional closed toed landing. Fastball is heavy and he worked downhill with it showing, at times, spotty command of the pitch - command was better at 86-87 mph than it was at 87-88 mph. When commanding it he was able to throw to both sides and elevate for swing-and-miss results. Klenske's changeup is a potential plus pitch that touched 80 mph and was best at 77-78 mph. He keeps the pitch down with its arm side action and deception. Pitch comes from the same slot and arm speed as fastball. Klenske's curveball shows early and has gradual tumbling action at 74 mph. Snapped one off at 75 mph that was sharp with late biting action.
