Long 6-foot-2, 160-pound frame with plenty of projection within. Athletic and polished mover on the bump with a loose, quick arm. On Sunday, he ran his running fastball up to 88 mph in the beginning of his start and he settled in the low-to-mid-80s as his outing went on. Was also confident in a low-70s slider that played with late sweep and was able to spot it up in the zone, while also throwing it out for whiffs. It was a quality look at this uncommitted arm and is continuing to trend in the right direction after a couple of strong looks throughout the year.

RHP Braxdon Decker (Highland, 2025) caught our attention on the mound in his PBR event debut. The 6-foot-2, 160-pound multi-sport athlete from southern Illinois is a lanky mover on the mound with a loose, whippy arm and low-effort delivery to pair. His fastball is plenty unique - it peaked at nearly 2500 RPM while also moving 22 inches horizontally at max and played in the low-to-mid-80s, touching 87 mph. Decker showed plenty of confidence in his low-70s slider, landing it for strikes in hitters’ counts, and spinning it at 2482 RPM at peak. Decker appears to just be scratching his surface on the mound and is a name to follow headed into the fall of his junior year.
