2/24/19:More of a prospect as a pitcher than hitter, English earned the "W" on Friday night with three scoreless innings of relief in what was a very similar look to this past summer in the Cape. He's a confident, athletic strike-thrower with a low-90s fastball and above-average-to-plus slider at 84-87 mph. Throws from a high three-quarter slot with repeatable arm action. Exceptional at fielding his position, makes tough plays look easy. As a hitter he showed more bat strength than bat speed. Hits with a balanced base and minimal separation. Slides his hips a bit and pulls off the ball with very little top-hand extension. Doesn't drive his hands independently when his front shoulder opens up. Instead he lets his hands go with his shoulder, therefore is in/out of the hitting zone quickly. His top hand must drive the barrel through the baseball. His timing must be perfect to make hard contact with the ball. English will likely be given an opportunity to both hit and pitch in pro ball, similar to Tanner Dodson (California) in last year's draft. Ultimately, I believe he fits nicely into the middle/back end of a bullpen as a bridge arm at the ML level. (Seifert)

8/1/18:English continues to improve after sitting out his sophomore season (2017) from Tommy John surgery. In a recent relief appearance he sat 90-94 mph with his fastball while flashing a plus slider at 84-85. Clean and compact arm action with lower effort delivery. Lands soft. Fair down plane. Worked both sides with his fastball while challenging hitters. Slider was short and sharp, above average, future plus pitch. Controlled for repeated strikes and expanded when needed. Mixed in a changeup at 84 mph for his third pitch. Overall, English is an athletic strike-thrower who will need to develop more wiggle on his fastball. The down plane is decent, yet still needs some cut or sink. With the feel he already shows, it’s highly likely that he will be able to make this adjustment. With continued good health, English could be considered early on Day Two for the 2019 draft. (Seifert)

Two-way prospect as both a RHP and OF, English shows plus raw power and arm strength as his top tools. Ran a 4.40 on a ground ball to shortstop and average-to-above average future defensive skills in the outfield. Likely will be given the change to both hit and pitch in professional baseball, similar to recent MLB picksTanner Dodson(California) andBrendan McKay(Louisville). Time will tell which position ultimately works out, but at this point his pitching ability profiles to a higher level on my looks. (Seifert)

4/10/18: The redshirt sophomoremissed all last season due to Tommy John surgery in January 2017. He also fouled a pitch off his foot in Friday’s game and did not look comfortable at the plate. However, he was all business on the mound as the Sunday starter for Tech. English featured a 88-92 mph fastball, an average 82-84 mph slider and occasional below average changeup at 83 mph. Currently, just 15 months post-op, expect even bigger things from him in the future as added time from his surgery should enable even more improvement. (Seifert)
