Notes

1/31/23

RHP Nathan Chapman (Jacobs): The Jacobs junior sat 85-86 mph – up from the 82-84 range in August – with a well-above-average curveball, 75-76 mph, featuring sharp 11/5 action.

4/23/22

Eastern Illinois commit, currently ranked No. 56 in the Illinois 2022 class. Lanky, strong 6-foot-3, 192-pound frame with room to fill out. Started on the mound and was lights out against the No. 3 team in the state; going six innings while scattering just four hits, no earned runs, eight strikeouts and two walks. The right-hander’s arm works short out of the glove into a high ¾ slot, playing quick to release. Down the mound, Chapman works quickly from balance point into a drop/drive lower-half, striding in-line to the plate while landing square. HIs fastball sat mostly in the 87-89 mph range early on, topping out at 90 mph with finish through the zone. His curveball was his go-to secondary offering, playing off a sharp 11/5 plane with tight spin, thrown in any count with depth and feel for the bottom of the zone, 71-76 mph with manipulated shape at times for strikes. 

1/29/22

6-foot-3, 192-pounds; long-limbed with room for added strength. Stretch-only delivery, starts with front foot closer to first-base, utilizes a drop/drive lower-half down the mound, reaching balance point and then moving into an up-tempo stride down the mound while remaining in-line. Arm works quick from a short, over-the-top slot, creating a tough downhill angle for hitters. Fastball sat 86-88 mph with running action into right-handed hitters (20.7 inches of max IVB; 15.9 inches of average IVB). The right-hander showed off a tight slider with an average spin rate of 2,317 rpm (T2407 rpm) that sat in the 76-78 mph range, showing short 10/4 shape and thrown with fastball arm-speed. He utilized a tumbling 11/5 curveball in the 74-76 mph range with depth and  advanced feel for the zone, landing it for a strike 75% of the time. He rounds out his four-pitch mix with a firm changeup in the 80-82 mph range, diving to his arm side and killing spin, landing it for a strike 40% of the time while routinely keeping it low in the zone.

4/24/21

Built at a sturdy 6-foot-2, 200 pounds; got the start for the Golden Eagles against Barrington on Saturday. Attacks the strike zone with a three-pitch mix, which helped him strike out 10 batters in four innings. He allowed four hits – though even fewer barrels – walked only one. Stretch-only. Touched 87 mph a couple times in the first two innings; sat mostly 83-85 otherwise. Fastball runs/carries out of a short, quick high ¾ slot. Curveball is aggressive, 71-74 mph, flashed late 11/5 action; demonstrated confidence to use it in any count, regardless of the handedness of the batter. Some over-reliance on it, hung some that led to some scattered trouble. Threw a few changeups, 78-79 mph, at arm speed with sink/fade; quality third pitch.

3/20/21
Chapman saved his strongest showing to date for the Preseason All-State. Chapman, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound right-handed pitcher was one of the top prospects at the recent McHenry Preseason I.D. and took it to another level on Saturday.
