1/23/19 - 6-foot, 180-pound right-handed pitcher, strong lower half. Unorthodox delivery, starts with back leg broken, coils hips, short arm action, side arm slot. Momentum carries downhill, lands square, finishes athletically. Fastball works 79-81 with run and sink. Slider, sweeping action, 69-73. Changeup, near fastball arm speed, fade action, 68-70.
10/11/18 - Uncommitted. Currently stands at 6-foot, 170 pounds with an athletic build, still some room to add to his frame. During his two innings of work, he mostly sat 81-83 mph, touching 84 with his fastball that showed run along with a slider at 72-73 mph with some sluvry action and a 75-76 mph changeup from the sidearm slot. Creates deception throughout his delivery and a tough angle on hitters, forcing off balance swings. Induced multiple weak ground ball/fly ball outs and worked down in the zone. Childs projects for another uptick in velocity and will be a quality add to a program looking for a bullpen arm.

05/19/18- Uncommitted. Currently stands at 6-foot, 170 pounds with a lean, athletic frame. Still some room to fill out. Works out of the stretch with a low ¾ arm slot, creating some deception in his delivery. Creates a tough matchup against right handed hitters. Fastball mostly sat 80-84 mph with plenty of movement across the zone. Also mixed in a 74-76 mph changeup that showed some sink along with a 76-79 mph slider that displayed some sweeping action. Should see an uptick in velocity as he continues to add to his frame.
08/25/18- Uncommitted. Currently stands at 6-foot, 175 pounds with an athletic frame. On the mound he throws from a low ¾ slot and creates deception and a tough angle on right handed hitters while also jamming left handers on the inside of the plate. Not only induced multiple swings and misses on all of his pitches, but forced the batter to be out in front and uncomfortable at the plate which led to weak ground ball and fly ball outs. Fastball mostly sat in the 81-83 mph range with plenty of movement along with a 72-73 mph slider that showed late bite.
