LHP Colton Kachinsky (Lincoln-Way West, 2023) is an impressive 6-foot-2, 195-pound southpaw with a gifted arm for his age. It's a long and loose lever that works with ease to produce an 82-84 mph fastball that showed well above average feel and arm side run (measuring at 14 inches on average). Kachinsky showed above average feel for all three pitches, including a sweeping curveball and fading changeup. 


6-foot, 162-pound, well-proportioned, left-handed pitcher. Repeated his delivery well and kept hitters off balance all day long thanks to his fastball/curveball combination. Mixed his curveball in at any time, short wrinkle, feel for the zone, 1/7 shape. Fastball played in the mid-70’s, topped at 78 mph; a bunch of weak contact, rollovers, frustrating hitters. Pitchability left-hander who collects outs to follow in the 2023 class.
Final Line: 4 IP, 4 H, ER, 3 K, 2 BB.


6-foot, 162 pounds; big, strong frame. Sat 75-78 mph from a ¾ slot with an uptempo delivery, repeats well. Pounded the zone, attacked hitters with confidence; struck out five of the six he faced in two innings of work. Almost exclusively used his fastball to miss bats; batters were consistently late and seemingly struggled to square anything up.
