6-foot-1, 180-pound right-hander from the Northeast Baseball program. We have seen Steven a couple times now and believe his arm is outstanding. Pitches out of a plus ¾ slot with good direction on the top and bottom half. There is forward lean as he lifts to go to the plate, fortunately for him , his arm is quick enough to catch up. Definitely a high level reliever, if he decides to work on pitching. Fastball up to 87 mph, and he is coming off being hurt with a non-throwing shoulder injury. The slider has excellent shape to it, sits 77 mph. The changeup is a work in progress, throws at 79 mph. Big follow on the bump.

Potential two-way prospect, from Milton Academy, standing 6-foot, 180-pounds. On the mound, he touched 90 mph with a 77 mph slurve. The fastball has life to it, control of the pitch needs to improve. The spin pitch can be shortened and should be way above average as he matures. Working towards having a changeup is a must. Pitches out of a ¾ slot, with slight forward lean at lift, and a hard glove pull as he gets into his stride. There is a ton to like on the mound. At the plate, tee exit velocity of 85 mph. The set up even footed with a high hand set up. The path is long and strong to the ball. The bottom half is under control through contact. Ran a 4.33 down the line on his dig to first. In the outfield, he is a solid defender, runs well enough and throws plenty. Threw 85 mph from right field with carry and accuracy.

6-foot, 180-pound, physical athletic frame, shoulder are sloped with hands being strong and fast twitch. Shows to still have room to fill out. A right-handed pitcher who has burst onto the scene. The delivery is simple, needs to be smoothed out, leg raise and hands could be in sync a little more. The direction is in line, could get out a little more. The finish is out front, stops his arm at the end and needs to let it finish when it wants to. The arm action is short and has some crank like whip to it. The hand speed is advanced and the ball jumps out of his hand. The fastball was 86-88 mph, heavy, with life to the arm side. The slider is thrown hard at 76-80 mph with break, not much of a changeup at this point. Offensively, hits from the right side, set up is even and slightly short, hands are loose with some rhythm to them and he starts just above his back shoulder. The stride is direct and minimal, could get the backside involved more. The path is level, with a two handed finish, tee exit velocity was 88 mph. Times down the line are okay, at 4.44. Defensively, throws it very well from the OF, clocked at 87 mph, with above average carry. The footwork and transfer are clean and he gets rid of it rather quick. At this point is a two way, projects for me off the mound, big time arm and backend of the game type of guy.
