12.8.15 - Verbally committed to Ranger College.
6.18.15 - 6-foot-6, 185-pound, lanky build with athleticism, two-way player. Hits from the left-side, slightly open set up, short stride, lower half works. Good bat speed, long bat path, 95 mph exit velocity. Defensively showed average hands, fluid footwork, loose arm action, ¾ slot, 88 mph from the OF, 80 mph from the IF. Ran a 6.78 60-time. On the mound displayed a tall-and-fall delivery, high ¾ arm slot, short arm action, lands closed. Fastball showed arm-side-run, sat  84-86 mph. Sider had 10/4 shape, 74-77 mph. Curveball sat 72-74 mph.

6.5.15 - 6-foot-4, 190-pound lanky, long levers, projectable left-handed hitting SS/RHP. Gazsouski showed fluid infield actions during pregame, moving well for his size (4.33 to first on a groundout to first), soft hands, plays through the baseball, quick release, showed feel for accuracy from a couple different slots. Frame and added weight could see him move to an infield corner, but has above average athleticism to stay at short currently. Hits from a tall, open stance, didn’t do much offensively on this day, but is hitting .353 with 12 doubles, six triples, and four home runs on the year. Impressed in relief, throwing three hitless innings. Works from a short, high ¾ arm slot, separates hands high, short circle, works from the first base side of the rubber, loads knee over the rubber well, stride direction is in line with home plate, lands slightly closed. Fastball sat 85-87 mph with late life (sat in 86-89 range on day two of the tournament, closing out the State Championship game), gets good extension and gets on hitters quickly. Looked harder and likely has more in the tank with projectable frame. Slider thrown aggressively out of same window as fastball, 75-78 mph. When it stayed up it failed to break, but occasionally showed plus depth, 11/5 shape, has a change to be an above average offering at the college level. Gazsouski was unknown to the PBR Scouting staff, and will likely be making an appearance at the high end of the updated Illinois class of 2016 rankings. High end prospect who could make a splash on the summer circuit.

6-19-2018:Junior, RHP, Rockford (Ball State) – 6-foot-6, 200-pound, lean and lengthy build. Deceptive closer with a live, quick arm. Worked solely out of the stretch with a H34 release point. Straight average FB that sat 89-91 and topped 93. Plus breaking ball at 81-84 with great 11/5 shape. Paired with good control to each side of the plate. Threw the CB a lot, and it played. Produced multiple swing and misses with that pitch in his 1.1 inning appearance. He only allowed 1 runner on a walk and struck out 3 of the 5 batters faced. (Jake Stone)
