4/4/2019 Spring Scout Blog: 6-foot-4, 185 pound uncommitted RHP. Klein continues to develop a pitcher's physique and brought recent showcase velocity to a game mound opening night at home.  Righty throws from the 3/4 slot with good quick arm rotation that can be short in back. Fastball had some run action 83-85 on the night touching 86 a couple times in the first two frames. Curveball was down in the zone and a mixed in some tight movement. Slider was better, but the two pitches did display similar shapes at times. Both caused swings and misses from good opposing hitters. As discussed in a winter showcase, projectable velocity increases will likely be seen this season.

2/16/2019: Sam Klein, RHP/SS, Bloomington North HS, 2020, 6 foot 4, 185 pounds, throws from a mid ¾ slot with a good front side and shows arm quickness with all of his pitches. Showed a FB with arm side action that sat 84-85 with average effort.  Curveball had good 11/5 short down action and sat 70-74, and Slider was shorter and tighter version of the CB and sat 78-79. Changeup showed a little sink when down and sat 78-79. More velocity in the tank for this projectable RHP.

Did tend to fly open at times on front side causing him to fall off to 1B side. FB sat 80-82 and he also mixed in an up and down CB for strikes with gradual break at 70-72. CH showed some action at 75-78.
