FB 88-92 with much improved spin rate, now into the 2600s, topping at 2680. Above average SL at 80-82 was down a few ticks velo from last look in the fall. Spin rates in the 2500s. Mixed in 81-83 mph SPL as main change of pace. Found several barrels in his 7 IP, but competed and threw strikes for the CG on a cool, windy day. Effort has lessened a bit in his delivery, esp with head jerk since last look in fall at Scout Day. Solid overall outing with stuff and performance. Day Two prospect.

The recent LSU commit wasn’t as sharp compared to our look this summer in Kernels Collegiate League action. During scout day Bollman’s fastball velo lived at 93-94 with spotty control as he was overthrowing...a typical tendency for this day when radar guns are lined up behind the backstop and TrackMan is staring you down from directly behind the plate. His heater did show some cut to his glove side and some ride up in the zone. He worked slowly from a nontypical, hybrid wind-up/stretch mixed delivery and varied his pace to the plate with the intention of manufacturing some deception and disrupt hitters’ timing. On this look it seemed to disrupt the timing/sync of his delivery more so than the hitters. He did work down the mound with excellent extension out front from a high ¾ release point. His tight slider flashed average, but was mainly in the below average-to-fringe quality category, coming to the plate in the 78-81 mph range. He threw one changeup at 81 mph which showed slider-like action. It may not have been the best first-ever look for many of the scouts in attendance, but it was likely enough for them to return to see him in game action later this fall or next spring.

1.24.18 - Verbally committed to Danville Area Community College.

10.8.17 - 6-foot-1, 170-pound RHP/SS with a lanky frame. On the mound works from a high ¾ arm angle with a loose arm action. Tall and fall delivery with a slight pause after balance poting. Regular effort working in line with home plate. Fastball was straight at 78-82 mph. Curveball has 11-5 shape at 64-67 mph. Changeup has sinking action at 68-72 mph. Defensively has a long arm action from a high ¾ arm slot. Accurate throws across the infield at 77 mph. Athletic actions with soft hands. At the plate hits from an open setup, long leg kick stride. Pull hitter with a long swing path. 71 mph exit velocity from a tee.

7/10/20: A 6-foot-1 right-hander, Bollman delivered a dominant performance in his summer debut with five innings of no-hit ball and six strikeouts. He followed it up in his next start with a seven-inning, 11 strikeout, no walk performance. In 12 IP this summer Bollman has allowed five hits, walked one and struck out 17. He overpowers hitters with a fastball/slider mix from a high three-quarter slot and works down the hill with a controlled delivery. His arm action is clean with a deeper path and above average effort. He’s also athletic and can vary the pace to his delivery to produce some deception. Bollman throws both a two-seam and four-seam fastball. His four-seamer lives in the 92-93 mph range, spinning in the 2300s, while his two-seamer is more 89-91 in the low-2000s. He looks to be capable of adding even more velocity after a recent jump of 10+ from his senior year of high school to the present. His slider is his go-to pitch, which he will throw up to 85 mph, but mostly sits 81-82 while spinning 2100-2200 rpm. It’s an average to better pitch at times. The final piece of his arsenal is a low-spin circle changeup in the 80-82 mph and 1400-1500 rpm range. It showed good sink with fair arm speed and played above average on this look. Bollman was a sophomore at Danville Area College this past spring and had committed to Toledo for this fall. However, by regaining a year of eligibility due to the pandemic, Bollman instead will head to one of the premier junior college baseball programs in the country at Wabash Valley, IL. As a once largely unknown junior college pitcher, he has now risen to a professional pitching prospect.
