3.14.18 - Lipscomb commit, currently ranked No. 179 in PBR Illinois’ Class of 2018. 6-foot, 160-pound athletic right-handed pitcher. Pitches with fire, wears his emotions on his sleeve. Works from a ¾ arm slot with a long, loose arm action, slight stab on the backside. Athletic delivery, finishes crossing over towards first base. Fastball, glove-side cut at times, mostly straight, started the game 85-87 mph, settled in at 83-85. Used fastball effectively to climb the ladder and get batters to chase, located waist up. Off-speed was used sparingly to begin the game, changeup 80-81 with fade. Curveball featured a big change of speed, coming in at 70 mph with big, looping break, introduced later in his outing, mixing in high fastballs with low, looping curveballs. Struck out eight batters in 4.2 innings pitched.
