8/5/15
Good showing for this promising left-handed as he garner attention all over the country. The fastball sat 84-86 with life and sink. The breaking ball is still a bit wide and 67-69 with the right shape to it. The changeup has the makings of a quality pitch in the upper 70’s. The changeup spin is correct and with time could be a quality pitch. The arm works cleanly at a ¾ slot and has quickness to it. The leg lift is simple and when he stay under control his ball moves more and he controls the strike zone nicely. Had some head movement when he tries to overthrow.  Should be a quality starter at the next level. Played right field, showed a quality glove and arm strength. Swings the bat from the left-side and it has looseness to it. The bottom half needs to settle down but he could be a two-way player at a lower level. Will, more than likely, be a pitcher at a higher level of division 1 baseball.

Left-handed hitting outfielder who showed an above average arm in the outfield, throwing 84 from there. The swing is loose and and the hands start low. The stance is open and the bat works nicely, needs to flatten out the path a bit but with strength that should happen. Ran a 4.68 and moves very well in the outfield. Athletic enough to kick around in both right and left. On the mound, he has a loose arm and some explosiveness to his fastball. 82-84 with plus life and a feel for the strike zone. The slider is a bit wide now and at 69, will improve as he adds more fastball to the pitch. Changeup is at 70 and has the correct spin and right action to it. The delivery is repeatable and could be tightened a bit. Big prospect for me.

5-foot-11, 175 pounds with an average frame. The left handed pitcher shows good feel on the mound as he offers long, easy arm action and repeatable mechanics. Featuring plenty of arm-side run, his 80-82 mph fastball will prove tough for hitters to square up consistently. His breaking ball is thrown with near fastball arm speed and shows tight spin at 69-70 mph. Also throws a 70-71 mph changeup that exhibits fading action. From the outfield he uses a good crow hop and throws from a loose, high-¾ slot with some effort at 83 mph. Left-handed hitter that starts open and gets to even. Easy stroke that his slightly uphill with 87 mph exit velocity.

2020 DRAFT:Seymour planted a flag with a loud Cape showing last summer in which he struck out 39 while allowing just six walks in his 25.1 innings of work (2.48 ERA/1.03 WHIP/.217 BAA). The 6-foot, 210-pound lefty doesn't boast overpowering stuff, but he works quickly and does a very good job tunneling his fastball, changeup and slider, making him a tough arm to consistently square-up. He works his heater into the low-90s, touching 94, with modest arm-side action, and it plays up thanks to an above-average 79-80 mph changeup that he throws on plane with the fastball with excellent arm speed deception. The offering shows arm-side dive following that of the fastball and Seymour excels at turning it over consistently. His tilted slider is a potential average offering that also plays up due the mirroring action off of his fastball and changeup, and is particularly effective away to same side arms after being set-up by a fastball. Given his loud summer, strong four-week spring (3-0, 2.21 ERA, 20.1 IP, 13H, 5 BB, 40 SO) and solid three-pitch mix, Seymour profiles as a top 4-5 round target this summer.

8/14/19:In his last start of the summer, Seymour planted a flag with a six-inning, one hit outing in which he allowed just one walk and struck out seven, capping a very loud Cape showing in which the VaTech lefty struck out 39 while allowing just six walks in his 25.1 innings of work (2.48 ERA/1.03 WHIP/.217 BAA). Seymour doesn’t boast overpowering stuff, but he works quickly and does a very good job tunneling his fastball, changeup and slider, making him a tough arm to consistently square-up. The heater works 89-to-90 mph with modest arm-side action but plays up thanks to an above-average 79-to-80 mph changeup that he throws on plane with the fastball with excellent arm speed deception. The offering shows exaggerated arm-side dive following that of the fastball and Seymour excels at turning it over consistently. His tilted slider is a potential average offering that also plays up due the mirroring action off of his fastball and changeup, and is particularly effective away to same side arms after being set-up by a fastball. Given his loud summer and solid three-pitch mix, Seymour profiles as a Day Two target for next June’s MLB Draft. (Faleris)
