Notes

7/05/22

Strong 5-foot-11, 180-pound frame. Took the mound for Top Tier Americans on Friday and showed his usual loud, low-effort stuff. Fastball peaked at 90 mph, sitting at 87-89 mph with late run and sink at times. Started to pitch backwards more the second time through the order with a low-70s curveball that he comfortably landed for strikes at a 2,600+ RPM average. 

6/08/22

Katz, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound lean right-hander, ran his fastball up to 89 mph, sitting 87-88 mph with life through the zone, spinning at an average of 2,173 RPM. His spin really started to stand out on his breaking balls, with his slider averaging 2,546 RPM (72-75 mph) and his curveball averaging 2,633 RPM (70-73 mph). He also showed feel for a fading changeup that he was able to land for strikes, 78-80 mph.
