Recently seen at Area Code game scrimmage in New Hampshire. Sat 90-92, bumping a 94 mph fastball. 

6/28/16

Big and physical right-handed pitcher who we have seen a bunch as he went to the Future Games with us last year. The delivery is clean and the arm swing is long on the backside. Has a ton of leverage and downhill to his fastball, it touched 87 mph. The breaking ball has improved, the shape is better this year, it sat at 72 mph. There could be a jump in the breaking ball velocity with more fastball hand speed. The changeup needs a spin fix, as its cutting, sat at 78 mph. Slight closure to the body at foot strike is causing extension issues but very cleanable. Big time arm, love the projection and the arm speed.

SPRING SEASON OF 2016
Developing nicely as he is consistently 87-89, touching 90 mph. The breaking ball has power to it, and should be formidable at the next level. Shows the ability to handle the minus pitch. Command of all three pitches has to improve but he is a guy to keep an eye on for the MLB draft in two year.

Big and physical right-handed pitcher who threw the ball well in Indianapolis. The projection on this guy is enormous. Pitched 82-85 with life on the fastball and a downhill plane. The delivery is simple and the arm works very well. The glove side is a bit wide and his pull take him offline. With some fine tuning, his ceiling is high.The breaking ball is 11/7, at 66-69 and the changeup up was 70-74 with the right rotation and action. He handles his position well and can control the running game with a slide step to home. Command and control are still a work in progress, but based on raw ability this guy could have his pick of schools.

Big, long and athletic right-handed pitcher. Certainly looks the part at 6-foot-3, 210-pounds, with some room to fill in more. The arm is loose and free, slightly higher than ¾. He has some direction to clean up in his delivery and his front side needs to be stronger at foot strike but the arm is plus. The fastball got up to 86 mph and the spin has good shape and touched the high 60s. Showed a good feel for a minus pitch, as the changeup was 75 mph. Lot to like at such a young age, from here on out, it's clean up and refine in order to keep healthy.
