9/23/23

LHP Justyn Hart (Lincoln-Way East, 2024; Missouri commit) has long been one of the top arms in the state’s 2024 class, and gave another upside look this weekend. The left-hander moves extremely well down the mound while standing at a sturdy 6-foot-2, 224-pound frame. Hart works from a composed delivery with a high leg kick. After a shaky first inning, he settled in nicely, pitching at 84-86, T87 mph to both sides of the plate. Hart played off the fastball using a mid-70s changeup with late break to the arm-side forcing awkward swings and misses. Currently ranked No. 27 in the Illinois ‘24 class.

Hart is a extra physical southpaw at 6-foot-2, 225-pounds from this talented White Sox Ace team. Hart toed the rubber on Saturday and was impressive throughout the game. Over his four innings of work, Hart tallied 10 strikeouts with predominantly fastballs that reached highs of 87 mph.
