2/24/24

There’s plenty to like on the mound with LHP Samuel Chin (St. Laurence, 2026), starting with the 5-foot-11, 148-pound southpaw’s ability to spin a breaking ball. He consistently landed a 68-70 mph breaking ball for strikes that averaged 2624 RPM, peaking at 2723 RPM. Being able to spin the baseball at a high rate is typically an indicator of future velocity and it’s something we’re personally expecting from Chin, who’s fastball currently sits at 82-83 mph. Additionally, Chin’s changeup showed heavy horizontal movement at peak (T17.7”) at 78-79 mph.

2/24/24
LHP Samuel Chin (St. Laurence, 2026) gave one of the more fluid looks on the mound over the weekend. There’s all kinds of ease, athleticism and fluidity in his movement on the mound, and he pairs that with a clean and quick arm path out of a ¾ slot. Chin’s fastball sat 81-83 mph with slight arm-side run. His curveball sat 67-70 mph, spinning it at an average of 2624 rpm, and his changeup sat 77-78 mph with -14.9 inches of average horizontal movement.
10/15/23

Chin had fluid actions all-around from the left side of the hill. Chin’s fastball came out of the hand cleanly, sitting 79-80 mph with arm-side run (avg. 14.5” HM), while his best offspeed pitch in this look was a short-horizontal slider that sat 71-73 mph with out-pitch characteristics.

6/05/22

Chin was an impressive arm for the eventual championships of this tournament. The southpaw showcased an easy, almost effortless delivery that created fastballs in the low 70’s. As for his offspeed, he threw a survey type breaker and changeup that flashed hard running action. Standing at a lanky 5-foot-8, 130 pounds, and with an already solid pitching repertoire, Chin’s projectability is legitimate.
