RHP Josh Efflandt (Wauconda, 2024) has made a big jump in velocity since our last look in 2022. In a little over a year’s time Efflandt has seen his max fastball climb from 81.9 mph to 88.6. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound right-hander showed an athletic delivery down the mound paired with a quick arm with acceleration out front. His fastball sat 85-88 mph, topping out at 88.6 mph (event high) with ride and carry through the zone (average of 16.1 IVB). His curveball flashed a sharp bite with 12/6 action, reaching a top spin rate of 2306. Rounding out his arsenal, Efflandt threw a change-up with fade to the armside.
