5.25.16 - Illinois State recruit. Ranked No. 31 in Illinois and No. 400 overall. 6-foot-6, 185-pound, left-handed pitcher with a long, lanky, extremely projectable frame and plenty of room for continued physical development. Velocity continues to climb and looks to have plenty more in the tank. Ability to hold his velocity throughout his start. Smooth, repeatable, efficient delivery with rhythm; stays on line, lands square and finishes athletically. Simple, efficient lift and go out of the stretch. Deceptive pickoff move to first base; picked off two runners. Arm works clean, loose and quick out of a ¾ slot with minimal effort. Threw his fastball for a strike throughout, with life, arm-side-run and tilt when down in the zone; flattens out, arm-side-run when up in the zone. Fastball sat 86-88 mph throughout, touched 90 twice. Held his velocity throughout, sat 88 mph in the seventh inning. Velocity was firmer out of the stretch than wind-up at times. Flashed a slider, average feel, inconsistent shape, 1/7, 10/4 action, short break and some depth when he stays on top; went to it more often in the later innings, 75-78 mph throughout. Feel for a changeup, straight action, fastball arm speed, 79 mph; potential out pitch. Overall, Headrick controls his body extremely well given his extra-large frame. Good overall feel for pitching with athleticism and an extremely high ceiling. Final Line: 7IP, 7H, 3R, 11K, BB.

5.22.15  6-foot-5, 172-pound lanky left-hander, currently ranked No. 43 in IL, No. 393 overall, committed to Illinois State. Starting to fill out frame, wide shoulders, should be able to add weight and velocity naturally as he keeps maturing. Highly projectable and keeps getting better, from 77-79 last spring, to 81-84 in the fall, to 83-86 mph touching 87 mph on Thursday. Works from a short, loose, ¾ arm slot, third base side of the rubber, medium height leg lift, keeps foot under knee, simple and efficient delivery. Works from third base side of the rubber, level shoulders throughout delivery, stays in line with lower half with stride direction. Fastball occasionally cuts to glove side, going in on right-handed hitters, which we’ve seen in the past. Also showed the ability to sink the ball down and away from righty’s getting several swings and misses down on fastballs. Not afraid to come inside and compete. Raised level of game with men on base in scoring position, extremely impressive. In the fall was exclusively a fastball/change pitcher, has added slider, which sat in 75-77 mph range early on, settling into 72-75 mph range. 2/7 shape on pitch, throws aggressively, at times lateral cutting action, but also garnered swings and misses to back foot of right-handed hitters with depth. Still showed good feel for 74-78 mph changeup, sells fastball arm action, slight arm side run, with occasional sink to the pitch. Had strikeouts with all three pitches, eleven on the day, while walking three and hitting two (both with inside fastballs). At the rate Headrick is progressing, he may start to gain professional scouting interest going into his senior season. As he adds weight and gets stronger he has as high a ceiling as any prospect in the state of Illinois’ 2016 class.

5/3/14 6-foot-4, 170-pound left handed pitcher, long lean frame, big feet and hands, wide shouldered with slender build, has room to add a lot of additional weight, highly projectable. Delivery shows the ability to repeat itself, short stride, occasionally rotational. Arm action is loose, ¾ slot, shorter backswing, lacks extension out front, occasionally slings the baseball, athletic arm action. Fastball sat 77-79 mph, held velocity throughout game, 77-79 in the seventh. Fastball command struggled early but showed he could control it well as the game went on. Changeup has excellent sink with fading action, advanced action, 68-70 mph. Headrick rarely showed a breaking ball, mostly fastball changeup guy with good feel for both. Headrick is a highly athletic pitcher, fields his position well, showed excellent athleticism. Projects well and looks to have a high ceiling with a quick loose arm. High follow 2016 prospect.

10-1-2018:Six-foot-six, 220 pound, lanky lefty. Fastball up to 94 mph early during his three-inning outing, settling in at 89-92. Consistently down in zone with angle, while working both sides of the plate. Lower effort, Kershaw-esque delivery with shoulder tilt and high glove position. Lands on-line, finishing over front knee. Slight fall to third base side after ball release. Clean and repeated. Limited feel to spin on this look. Slider showed more backup spin action than bite and acted more like a changeup at 77-79 mph.
