6/29/22

 As only a rising junior, LHP Danny Newman (Wauconda, 2024) showed impressive control over five pitches throughout his pen. The southpaw controls his body well, repeating with ease and striding slightly across his body. His fastball sat in the 73-76 mph range, sinking through the zone to his arm-side. He then went to a cutter at 70-72 mph that worked off a short 2/8 plane with horizontal cutting action, thrown for strikes. Moving on to his breaking balls, Newman showed to have feel for both a 1/7 curveball at 65-66 mph and 2/8 slider at 67-69 mph, landing both for strikes. His final offering was a fading changeup at 65-67 mph.
