Verbally committed to South Carolina.

Appenzeller checks so many boxes, starting with a long, lean-limbed 6-foot-5, 165-pound frame. He’s an ultra easy mover that exerts little-to-no-effort as he works downhill, producing presently impressive stuff with plenty more to come down the road. In this look, Appenzeller ran his fastball up to 88 mph, pitching at 84-87 mph, from as loose and clean of an operation you’ll find in the state. He showed feel for a 73-76 mph breaking ball that flashed sweep from the same arm angle as his fastball, and it’s a pitch that should continue to rack up swings and misses at a high rate as he starts to throw it with more velocity. A natural pronator, Appenzeller did throw a firm, naturally fading changeup at 79-80 mph with the action to be an effective pitch at the next level, though he used it sparingly. Just starting to scratch his ceiling on the mound, Appenzeller has the potential to be the next big arm out of Chatham, a high school program that has produced countless upper-tier arms over the last few decades.

9/26/23

Positional Profile: LHP/OF
Body: 6-5, 165-pounds.
Delivery: Clean, easy, and polished movement patterns with all sorts of ease, rhythm, and upside. Simple tall/fall delivery, hips stay closed to footstrike, lead leg hovers as he lands in-line to target. Athletic finish out front, repeats.
Arm Action: RH. Loose, free-flowing arm that stays moving, finishes out of a 3/4 slot.
FB: T88, 84-87 mph. Comes out clean with plenty more to come. Strikes, feel for the corners. T2324, 2136 average rpm.
CB: 72-75 mph. 1/7 shape with late sharp break at times. Throws it with similar intent to his fastball. T2313, 2223 average rpm.
CH: 80-80 mph. Maintains fastball arm speed and intent. Prontates naturally with advanced feel, sinks it. T1588, 1588 average rpm.

LHP Cameron Appenzeller (Chatham-Glenwood, 2025) appears to just be scratching the surface of his ceiling on the hill. A multi-sport athlete at Glenwood, golf and basketball, Appenzeller’s 6-foot-5, 175-pound long, loose-levered frame is sure to draw eyes each time he toes the rubber. He’s athletic down the mound with a loose ¾ arm action, pitching in the low-80s with his fastball and consistently working east-to-west. Off that, Appenzeller showed feel to spin a sweeping slider in the low-70s and he created natural arm-side run on a mid-70s changeup, too. He’s a name-to-know southpaw as his junior year is set to start. 

6/25/23

Appenzeller emerged as a high follow prospect following his outing on Saturday. Projectable 6-foot-5, 180-pound frame with long levers, shows plenty of upside. Came out of the bullpen sitting 83-85 mph, T86 mph with a whippy arm action and effortless delivery. Confidently threw a change up with depth at 75-77 mph. Flashed feel for a 11/5 curveball with hard bite. Also was playing up a year. A left-handed pitcher to watch on the rest of the summer circuit.
