9.23.17 - Louisville commit. 6-foot-2, 160-pound right-handed pitcher, thin lanky frame. Arm plays quickly from high ¾ slot. Fastball flashed cut action at times, 83-85 mph. Curveball played 11/5 72-74 mph. Flashed changeup at 77 mph.
6.21.16 - a Louisville commit, tossed the first three innings for Top Tier, surrendering three runs on just one hit and one walk while striking out five. Rosing has a thin, athletic 6-foot-1, 165-pound frame and showed a simple delivery with whippy arm action from a 3/4 slot. In the first inning, Rosing’s fastball was clocked at 84-87 mph touching 89. He also features a 72-76 mph breaking ball with 11/5 shape. The righty threw both pitches for a very high percentage of strikes.

1.17.16 - Athletic build 6-foot-1, 160-pound right-handed pitcher and Louisville commit. Quick and athletic arm action from a high ¾ slot. Repeats his delivery well, smooth rhythm, easy effort and an athletic finish. Fastball had easy life and was harder out of the stretch. Eased into his bullpen with his first three fastball coming in at 81, 83 and 85 mph. From there on out Rosing sat 86-88 mph, touching 89 twice. Curveball worked mostly 12/6, some sharpness but a tendency to get underneath it as well at 65-68 mph. Changeup, thrown for strikes, with arm speed, showed fade and arm-side-run and clocked at 70-72 mph. One of the top arms in the 2018 class.
Committed to Louisville in the summer following his freshman year.
7/15/15 - 6-foot-1, 150-pound, right-handed pitcher. One of the top 2018 arms in the Midwest. Works from a high ¾ arm angle with a short, quick arm action. Sat at an effortless 85-86 mph with his fastball thru his 3.1 innings of work. Compact, balanced delivery with a short leg lift. Toe down at balance point, falls off to first base side. Showed a good feel and command for three pitches in game. Changeup sat 72-74 mph with late fading action. Curveball showed 11-5 shape at 70-72 mph. In 3.1 innings of work struck out six hitters without allowing a hit.

5.5.15 - 6-foot, 150-pound wiry and athletic RHP, also hits leadoff for the Rockets. One of the top freshman prospects in the state of Illinois and quite possibly the entire Midwest. Rosing works from a long, loose, effortless, high ¾ arm slot, utilizes a short leg lift to his waist, toe down at balance point, stride direction is in line with home plate, lands square, level shoulders throughout his delivery. His motion is simple and repeatable, and it shows in his advanced feel for three pitches, uncommon for a high school pitcher, let alone a freshman on varsity. Rosing came out firing fastball anywhere from 84-88 mph in the first (mostly 86 mph). He throws both a two and four seam, running the two seamer in on the hands of right-handed hitters. He sat comfortably in the 84-86 mph range throughout his five innings of work, reaching back for 88 on a strikeout in the first, and 89 mph on a strikeout in the fourth. He showed advanced command of a 68-72 mph curveball, with tight rotation and 11/5 shape. He left it up in the zone a few times in 0-2 counts, but also showed the ability to bury it down in the zone when ahead. If that wasn’t enough, he also mixed in a handful of 73 mph changeups for strikes, one that flashed plus depth garnering a swing and miss down in the zone. His fastball sat more in the 81-84 mph range in the fifth, reaching 85, after an extended fourth inning that saw him wiggle out of a second and third not out jam unscathed. Rosing is fifteen years old and pitches well past his years as far as his composure goes. He rarely comes out of his delivery or attempts to overthrow the baseball. He also showed off his athleticism at the plate hitting from the leadoff spot. He hits from a slightly closed setup, with a short, quick, slightly uphill bat path. Barreled the first pitch of the game for a lineout to center. Jam shot RBI single that he fought off on the inner half into center in his second at bat, and a line shot single to left in his third at bat. The ceiling is likely highest on the mound. Added strength to his wiry frame over the next several years should help his velocity climb naturally. He’s a high follow prospect that will be in consideration as the top freshman prospect in Illinois in what is shaping up to be a talented 2018 class.
