Notes

Comments

4/09/22

Uncommitted, currently ranked No. 141 in the Illinois 2023 class. Strong, athletic looking 6-foot, 180-pound frame. Started on the mound against No. 23 Marsit and went six scoreless innings with six strikeouts and surrendered just two hits. His arm works long and loose out of the glove, repeatable arm-circle, playing from a ¾ to high ¾ slot with arm-speed. Liss easily repeated his delivery, moving with an athletic leg-kick into balance point, before shifting into a slight drop/drive lower-half that strides in-line down the mound. The right-hander’s fastball sat 86-89 mph throughout his entire outing, running to the arm-side and entering the zone at a steep angle thanks to him staying tall at release. He showed a knack to spin the breaking ball, playing off a 10/4 plane with tight spin and sharp action, occasionally coming from an 11/5 plane when he stayed more on top of it, 75-77 mph. His changeup possesses similar qualities to his fastball, running into right-handed hitters while maintaining arm-speed. The right-handed hitter also hit lead off for the Wikdkits and delivered a ringing triple to the right-field gap to start the game. Liss is a sure-fire follow for this coming spring.

2/26/22

Right-handers Hank Liss (Evanston) proved to be a pair of need-to-know arms from the event. Liss’ high-end feel for spin – 2,333 rpm average on the fastball, 2,704 on the curve, and 2,811 on the slider – helped separate himself from the group.
