Went to his slider early and often, maintains arm speed, thrown aggressively, 10/4 shape, late bite at times, 80-82 mph. Saw a couple of straight changeups at 84 mph.


John A. Logan JC commit. 6-foot-4, 201-pound, strong-bodied, right-handed pitcher. Continues to get better every time we see him. One of the harder throwers in the state. Came out of the bullpen and did not throw one fastball under 90 mph in his first inning of work; sat 90-92 mph, touching a couple 93’s. Second inning worked more in the 88-89 mph range.
