11/2/14 - Postlethwait is a physically impressive 6-foot-4, 195-pound right-handed pitcher and right-hand hitting corner infielder. Balanced set-up at the plate, leg kick, minimal hand load, inline stride, works middle-oppo, 77 mph exit velocity. Ran a 7.78 60-yard dash. During defensive work fielded the ball cleanly, three quarters arm slot, easy arm, 80 mph throwing velocity. Strong, accurate throws. On the mound starts deliberate and under control. Tall balance point, picks up tempo, slight drop/drive, three-quarters arm action, easy arm, arm works, excellent body control throughout delivery. Gets out front and works the bottom of the zone. Fastball with sinking action down, 77-79 mph, topped out at 81. Breaking ball with 11/5 shape, 68-71 mph. Feel for change-up with arm side run, 73-74 mph. Highly projectable class of 2017 pitching prospect with body control, an easy arm and much more in the tank velocity wise.
9/15/14 - Postlethwait possesses a projectable pitcher’s frame at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds.  He showed a balanced delivery and throws from a three quarters slot.  He has an easy arm and worked in the high 70’s but, clearly, there is much more in the tank velocity-wise.  Postlethwait's command has improved since we saw him in the summer and he has the ability to square up the catcher on the glove side black with his fastball, a rarity among young high school pitchers.  In addition, he moves well and made some athletic defensive plays on the mound.  He’s a strong follow in the Kansas class of 2017.
