Open Division Playoffs - The long and lanky XL frame showed off his two-way abilities in this one with a very high ceiling. I’d seen Splaine a lot last year, but this was my first look this year as he transferred schools and was out for the 1st half of the season. He showed off his strength in the bat when he doubled over the RF’s head on a FB up in the zone.The compact swing gets into the zone quickly with a high finish allowing him to use the strength in his frame. He’s athletic with a long stride length being able to move well once underway. During pre-game he took infield at 1st base and was mainly a catcher last season, but his future may be on the mound. At 6-4 190, the frame still has space to continue to add strength to it as he matures and on the mound he’s got a loose arm that is fast out front. The arm is long out of the glove towards second-base with quick arm speed getting to it’s 3/4 release. Splaine uses his hips well and is able to repeat his simple delivery getting his chest out over his front leg. The arm is consistent from the same release which allows his FB/CHG and CB to all look similar out of the hand with late actions at the plate. The FB 83-86 MPH showed sink at the plate with the ability to pound the arm side and flashed angle going glove-side. The CHG 73-80 MPH was a plus pitch diving under RHH’s bats and showing late run and sink with excellent feel able to throw the pitch in any count or multiple times in a row. It was a true swing and miss pitch and fooled a lot of hitters. The CB 71-73 MPH looked better in warmups than it’s usage in the game with late bend from a 12/6 shape. During the game the pitch was more 11/5 shape with smaller depth and times of cut; when he was letting the pitch work the shape was more consistent and flashed average. Splaine’s a known commodity with two-way futures giving him a very high ceiling.

BAWS 2018 - Excellent body type at 6-foot-4 195-pounds, long and lanky with some present strength and plenty of room to fill out and gain strength. One of top 2021 prospects in Northern California, particularly as a catching prospect. Tall open stance with hands pulling into back shoulder; balanced finish allows for compact bat with more to come on line drives he currently hits. Loose, easy swing with strong barrel control. Excellent receiver showing plus arm from behind plate (2.10-2.13 Pop); transitions will improve as he grows and speed up his pop time. Regularly puts ball on bag with ball coming out of his hand with limited effort on throws. Fluid runner but still learning to control limbs; 4.9 Home-1st. On the mound he was simple with hands going up/down on mid knee and elbows out; compact arm with easy actions before 3/4 release. Fastball 83-84 mph showing late life at the plate with arm side run. Change-up 72-77 mph with late arm side sink that played well off his fastball plane; showed feel for pitch going back to back and ability to manipulate shape to throw through the zone and keep hitters off the fastball timing. Future plus pitch off current viewing.
