 From a durable 6-foot-3 stature, Lyons’ has previously showcased as a sinker-type who can fill up the strike zone with low- to mid-80s stuff. On Sunday, much like Klekamp, he did the same with a well-rounded, effective three-pitch mix – while also adding newfound velocity. Up from an 84 mph high in 2020, Lyons sat at an easy 89-90 mph on Sunday, becoming a need-to-know uncommitted arm in Illinois’ junior class.
