OF/1B Karim Patterson (Latin School of Chicago, 2025) is a left-handed hitting outfielder that exhibited real power potential at the plate. Patterson took a loud round of BP, which led to him being towards the top of the leaderboard in multiple categories. He was all over the barrel, using a slightly uphill swing to generate a peak distance of 379 feet. To pair, Patterson also had one of the highest peak exit velocities at 99.3 mph. Patterson also showed off an above-average arm in the outfield, touching 85 mph.

6/20/23

Putting together one of the more impressive performances of the day was 1B/OF Karim Patterson (Latin School of Chicago, 2025) who stands at a strong 6-foot, 205-pounds. A left-handed hitter, Patterson produced one of the loudest rounds of BP on the day, recording a max exit velocity of 99 mph (event high) as well as a max distance of 314’. He showed strong, quick hands and present bat speed (71.5 mph avg.) with natural power in his swing. Defensively, he showed off an impressive arm from the infield and outfield, topping at 84 mph across the infield and 88 from the outfield; both event highs. To cap off his day he hopped on the mound and put together one of the more impressive bullpens at the event. He showed a smooth delivery that works downhill paired with a long and fluid arm. Patterson showed a three-pitch mix with a fastball that sat 81-82 mph with heavy armside run. He mixed in two separate breaking balls both with similar 1/7 shape, and landed both pitches for strikes.

1B/OF Karim Patterson (Latin School of Chicago, 2025) is a thick bodied L/L athlete who showed comfortable actions and soft hands around the bag at first base with a well above average arm for his age and position. While he showed best at first base, he looked serviceable as a corner outfielder as well moving fluidly through the baseball with average arm strength.
