RHP Cole Kratzberg (Orion, 2023) is yet another 2023 who showed some potential next-level stuff in Aurora. The compact right-hander works from an over-the-top slot with a clean arm action out of the glove. Down the mound, Kratzberg utilizes a drop/drive lower half while striding in-line to the plate, moving efficiently downhill. His fastball sat mostly 80-83 mph, reaching back for one 85 max with above-average spin traits behind it. The fastball is generally straight, but he showed feel for the zone, landing the pitch for strike over 85 percent of the time. The most impressive part of Kratzberg’s arsenal is his ability to spin the breaking ball, showing off a sharp breaking ball at 66-67 mph with high spin for that velocity, reaching highs of nearly 2,700 rpm. He also showcased a fading changeup at 70-72 mph, displaying feel for the bottom of the zone and natural arm-side life.
