7/26/19

An athletically built 6-foot-1, 185-pound right-hander, pitched a complete-game gem to lead Top Tier to a 5-4 victory over Elite Squad Texas. Sarver held his 86-87 velocity most of the game, bumped a few 88s and topped at 89. Fastball plays mostly true, and paired it with an effective 73-78 mph slider. When he threw the slider with more conviction and velocity, it served as a putaway pitch, as he did to two batters in the final frame. The arm is clean, loose and athletic coming out of a high-3/4 slot. The delivery, too, is athletic, low-effort, on-line and repeats it well. Threw a high-volume of strikes throughout the game. More velocity seemingly is in the tank.
