Notes

Comments

8/04/23

Verbally committed to Heartland CC.

7/20/23

Uncommitted. Currently ranked No. 174 in the state. Patton showed well in front of our scouting staff, working his fastball up to 85 mph, sitting primarily in the low 80s. He went to a sharp 1/7 breaking ball in the low 70s to pair off the fastball. 

4/14/23

Uncommitted. Patton had a stellar performance in their game against Auburn. He went 4-for-5 with three home runs and six RBIs. Patton also found time on the mound, throwing 1.2 innings with five strikeouts. On the year, Patton has tallied five home runs.

2/23/23

LHP Landen Patton (Sangamon Valley, IL, 2024) was one of the top arms in attendance on Monday. At 6-foot, 185-pounds, Patton moves down the mound well with noticeable hip and shoulder separation at footstrike, as well as extension. Patton’s fastball held 84-85 mph throughout his ‘pen, and his ability to consistently create vertical break (18+ inches) on it from a low release height (4.9 ft.) is noteworthy. Patton spun a breaking ball at 72-73 mph, spinning it at 2400+ RPM on average, and his best secondary in this look was a 79-80 mph changeup that he kept down in the zone with low spin, late fade, and fastball intent.

2/20/23

Positional Profile: LHP/1B
Body: 6-0, 185-pounds. Strength throughout, particularly in the lower half.
Delivery: Hands rock over the head to start delivery, lead leg lifts to a closed posture at balance, gets onto his backside, drop/drive downhill. Open toed landing, throws with effort.
Arm Action: LH. Long and loose arm action, high 3/4 slot.
FB: T85, 84-85 mph. Straight action with efficient spin and carry into the zone. T2259, 2152 average rpm.
CB: 72-73 mph. 1/7 shape. T2478, 2423 average rpm.
CH: 79-80 mph. Maintains fastball intent and effort, spotted down in the zone. T1625, 1498 average rpm.

8/09/22

Positional Profile: LHP/1B
Body: 5-11, 176-pounds.
Delivery: Fluid tempo, high leg-kick that rocks back into balance point, drop/drive lower-half that remains in-line down the mound. In-game stats: 2 IP, 4K, 3BB, 0H, 0ER
Arm Action: LH. Long/loose arm swing into a 3/4 slot.
FB: T81.3, 79-81 mph. Some feel for the zone, plays with finish and slight arm-side run at times. T2240, 2113 average rpm.
CB: 69-69 mph. 1/7 shape, gradual break that flashed sharp action. T2328, 2266 average rpm.
CH: 75-75 mph. Thrown with intent, mostly straight. T1538, 1498 average rpm.
SPLT: 75-76 mph. Thrown with arm-speed, plays with fading action to the arm-side.

8/09/22

Positional Profile: LHP/1B
Body: 5-11, 176-pounds.
Hits: LHH. Tall, relaxed setup, short stride. Loose, easy swing, uphill path and works the whole field.
Power: 90 max exit velocity, averaged 75.1 MPH. 301' max distance.
Arm: LH. INF-80 mph.Long arm swing finishes from a high 3/4 slot.
Defense: Quiet feet, plays low to the ground, hands work out front with length to release.
Run: 8.04 runner in the 60.
Vizual Edge: 66.6 Edge Score

2/23/22

Perhaps the most noteworthy ‘pen from this event came towards the end when LHP Landen Patton (Sangamon Valley, 2024) toed the rubber. The 5-foot-11, 176-pound sophomore pumped his fastball in at 82-83 mph from a long, loose fluid arm stroke that finished from a ¾ slot. Patton’s fastball metrics make it especially unique as it averaged 21+ inches of vertical break from an average release height of 5.1 feet, creating more natural rise from that lower arm angle than most. Patton complimented his fastball with a curveball and changeup, both of which he showed feel for throughout his ‘pen. His breaking ball played at 72-74 mph at a 2,200+ RPM average while flashing hard late action off a 1/7 plane. Patton threw his changeup at 75-76 mph with intent and from a similar slot than his fastball, spotting it up in the zone with occasional fade to the arm-side. He’s certainly a follow name on the mound in the state’s 2024 class. 

8/22/20

Positional Profile: 1B/LHP
Body: 5-8, 159-pounds. Well-proportioned build.
