2022 MLB Draft: Sproat projects to become a four-pitch Major League starter if it all comes together. Consistency will determine his ultimate role, but there are no questions about his first round type stuff or how he does it. At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds he's also built for durability. Showing a repeatable delivery with loose arm action, Sproat can sit in the upper-90s deep into games. He also showed a much livelier fastball this spring than the one he threw for the USA CNT last summer. His current heater has explosive arm side life at times, averaging 15.6" of horizontal movement (NCAA average is around 9.6") and his fastball now plays closer to its velocity. His next best pitch is an above average changeup with late bottom at 86-89 mph that he sells with fastball armspeed.He also mixes an upper-80s slider and a tight-spin curveball at 80-83 mph. Both pitches are generally in the fringe-to-average pitch quality category, but he will flash above average to better for each. With enhanced control, both pitches could develop into future above average at the Major League level. Overall, the Gator righty has 1st round stuff, but he will likely fall into the second to early third round range.

Showing improvement, yet still developing consistency this spring, Sproat projects to become a four-pitch Major League starter if it all comes together. Consistency will determine his ultimate role, but there are no questions about his first round type stuff or how he does it. At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds he's also built for durability. Showing a repeatable delivery with loose arm action, Sproat sat 97-98 for the duration of his six inning, 98-pitch start while touching 99 five times. It was a MUCH livelier fastball than the one he threw for the USA CNT last summer. This one had explosive arm side life at times, averaged 15.6" of horizontal movement (NCAA average is around 9.6") and played closer to its velocity than what I had seen in the past. His next best pitch on this look was an above average changeup with late bottom at 86-89 mph that he sold well with fastball-like armspeed. It induced four whiffs and a foul ball in 12 offerings. With near equal use, he mixed an upper-80s slider and a tight-spin curveball at 80-83 mph. Both pitches were mostly in the fringe-to-average pitch quality category, but he did flash above average to better for each. With enhanced control, both pitches could develop into future above average at the Major League level. Overall, the Gator righty has 1st round stuff, but he will likely fall into the late second-to-third round range.

Still developing consistency, Sproat projects to become a four-pitch starter when it all comes together. Consistency will determine his ultimate ML role as there are no questions about his pure stuff or how he does it. At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds he’s built for durability. He showed a balanced, repeatable delivery with a still head and compact arm action. He sat 97-98 for the duration of his three inning, 65-pitch start in Pulaski, then touched 99 repeatedly on Monday against the Olympic team. It wasn’t the liveliest of fastballs with a very ordinary 2100-2200 rpm spin rate and without adjustments he will need to locate to miss barrels. His curveball showed tight spin (2500+) at 81-82 mph and was mostly in the 45-50 (fringe to average) grade range. However, one could safely predict it as an above average pitch in the future. Sproat’s changeup flashed average with late bottom at 86-88 mph while a same velocity slider was his least used pitch. It graded out at a 40, or below average on this look. Overall, the Gator righty has 1st round potential for the 2022 draft.

Florida recruit. The lanky right-hander showed a loose, easy arm action with a lot of life. He had a full arm swing and had trouble repeating throughout the evening. The fastball worked mostly 90-93 mph, dropping off some in the fourth. He also showed a curveball a 76-79 with the harder end of the range showing more depth, and a changeup at 81-83 with fading action. The arm really works and is very whippy, but the front side can get rotational and the arm long which can lead to the high and arm-side misses. He has an extremely projectable frame and the ceiling is very high.
