04/13/18- Ole Miss recruit. LaFleur would shine early for Tate High School. Striking out four in the first two innings, the left-hander has gotten much more comfortable on the mound. Featuring a fastball/slider combo, he showed a much improved feel for both pitches early. The arm action is clean and more compact, with the ball coming out of the hand in the same tunnel with tilt. The fstball worked 83-87 mph all evening while the slider ranged from 75-77 with two-plane tilt. The command would falter slightly in the third and fourth He would walk two and hit one in the third before allowing a run on a fielder’s choice and would allow a run on a pair of singles in the fourth. LaFleur struck out the nine hole hitter to end the fourth and would proceed to settle in and strike out 6 of the last eight hitter he faced, finishing with a final line of six innings pitched with two runs on three hits, three walks and striking out twelve.

08/26/17- The PBR Future Games participant and recent Mississippi recruit stood out at the plate where he laced multiple line drives all over the field and showed his power potential with several balls flying over the center field and right field walls during batting practice. Also squared one up during the simulated game which was a no-doubter home run deep over the right field wall. Simple approach at the plate from the left side and creates leverage with his long limbs. Loose, easy effort on the mound from the left side where he sat 84-86 mph, touching 87 mph along with a 72-74 mph slider and a 75-76 mph change up. LaFleur still has room to fill out his frame with more power coming at the plate.

08/06/17- Committing to Ole Miss shortly after the event, he continued to show his tremendous two-way upside. The starting pitcher in game one did not fail to disappoint. He shows flashes of his long limbs starting to become in sync, with the fastball continuing to make jumps working 84-86 mph touch 87 mph. He has continued to mature and become stronger and still has tremendous upside on the mound. The curveball has also really progressed, showing depth and getting some swing and miss at 72-75 mph. Offensively, the big left handed hitter shows flashes of big pull power potential. When he works loose and easy and gets extension on a strong front side, the ball jumps off of the barrel. Huge upside with the best yet to come for LaFleur.

06/02/17- Highly projectable 6-foot-4, 185-pound frame with long levers, broad shoulders, high waistand clear, advanced athleticism.  Long, loose arm stroke into high-3/4 release with quick arm speed and easy effort. Highly athletic delivery with fluid rhythm, and quality direction. Pitched at 84-86 mph with tilt and angle on the fastball that should only get better as his frame fills out. Breaking ball showed sweeping action with quality spin and depth at 72-74 mph. During Friday’s position player workout, which was forced indoors, the left-handed hitter showed power potential, impacting the baseball  with force when his long levers synced up, posting a 91 mph exit velocity.

01/21/17- LaFleur looks like he has grown since October, and may be pushing 6-foot-4, especially in spikes. He still has a young face, but looks to have put on 15+ pounds of muscle since the fall. His long arms and legs aid in his deception on the mound. He strides out with a hard push from his backside with a long arm swing that delivers out of a high ¾ slot. The way he throws his glove toward the plate with almost choppy lower body drive is somewhat reminiscent of David Price. He was up to 83 mph on the day, and I expect more to come this spring/summer. His slider showed solid shape, but was not in midseason form, yet. At the plate, LaFleur utilized a simple approach, during batting practice, to spray line drives from gap to gap. LaFleur starts with his hands back, and does not take much of a stride, but it is easy to see the athleticism in his swing. His quick hands get to the ball with ease, but his barrel gets out of the zone just as quickly, right now. As he continues to grow into his long frame, expect LaFleur to find more fluidity in his path as well as discover the power that is waiting to come out.

11/12/16- Very high ceiling for the 6-foot-2, 175-pound LHP/OF. The left handed hitter has everything scouts and coaches look for in potential power left handed bat and corner outfielder. He has a calm and confident setup with good rhythm. He has a simple load and stays on time. He sometimes hits off of a weak front side, but the bat stays in the zone a long time and the ball jumps off of the bat. As he continues to fill out and learns how to really use his lower half, there should be some plus power potential. On the mound showcased a very easy and fluid motion. Has little to no effort in delivery. Arm works very well out front creating good extension and above average command for class. Upper and lower half worked in sync. Fastball sat 81-82 and projects to climb soon. Offspeed is behind the fastball, but projects to be above average given the athleticism and repeatability of delivery. Change up 74-77 mph, CB 67-70 mph. Very interesting two-way prospect, but may be one of the better left handed bats in the 2019 class.

9/17/16- The extremely athletic and projectable 1B/LHP was impressive all the way around. The left handed hitter hits from a tall setup with a medium leg kick and small hand load. He stays in good rhythm and is on time to the baseball. An advanced approach and very good path through the zone produced a first round of line drives to opposite field and a second round of balls driven to the pull side. He stays balanced and relaxed and trusts his hands and path through the zone resulting in consistent quality swings and a line drive single in the game. There is a lot of room to grow and fill out and with the present tools and bat speed expect him to grow into plus power. He was also impressive on the mound. With long, easy, over the top arm action he stays in line to home showing a fastball that ranged from 80-82 mph. He also showed a sweeping slider that ranged from 66-67 mph with shape and potential. There are present tools that play well above his class with an extremely high ceiling both at the plate and on the mound that make him one of the top 2019s in the state.
