PBR Mid-Atlantic ProCase 2.10.18
One of my favorite stories coming out of western Maryland has been the rise of this talented 2019 arm. One common theme from a majority of our pitchers at the ProCase was the aggressive makeup and Chaney was no different. It's a shorter quick arm action that got up to 91 mph with later life. Chaney showed his plus breaking ball has not changed, showing late life and depth. Change up has developed and is still a work in process. Physically he has continued to developed and is really turning into a young man and will be a fun one to watch out in Hagerstown this spring.
6.21.17 - Athletic frame at 6-foot, 170-pounds. Controlled, compact build up delivery with higher leg kick to down and out working downhill. Nice lower half involvement with explosive front leg to clear hips. Falls off at times off to first base side. Short arm action throwing from a high three quarter slot. Creates explosive arm speed pitching with effort on the hill. Repeated delivery well and looks to have some more left in the tank as he continues to add strength. Fastball jumped on hitters at 87-89 mph, topping out at 90 mph. Breaking ball is a plus pitch that bottoms out with sharp break and swing and miss ability up to 75 mph. Change up is a work in process, deep grip with some tension. shows some dive on the the pitch at 78 mph. 
11.4.15 - Chaney is an athletic player with a very projectable frame. On the mound, the throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with a smooth, explosive drop and drive delivery. He has a short, loose arm action and a lightning quick arm. His fastball had late run and sat 78-81, touching 82. His slider has tight, late 11/5 break and ran 66-67. The pitch has the potential to be devastating as he gets stronger and improves the spin rate on it. At the plate, he has a fluid swing and an explosive lower half that generates good bat speed. He is short to the ball and has a line drive approach and uses the entire field well, barreling the ball consistently.
6.30.15 - Lanky and athletic frame at 6-foot 155-pounds. Throws from a high ¾ arm angle with quick arm speed and a sound arm action.  Pitches with some effort.  Level shoulders and falls off towards first base. Has some rhythm in a controlled wind up.  Rushes at time in the stretch. Gets lower half to work, could continue to clear the hips. Fastball has some run to the pitch with command at 82 mph.  Breaking ball has 10/4 action with tight rotation and power potential with near fastball arm speed at 66 mph.  Interesting prospect and projectable frame and one to follow his development.  
6.24.15 - Projectable frame at 6-foot 155-pounds.  Has a short arm action throwing from a high ¾ arm slot.  Consistent throws with some carry at 78 mph.  Clean exchange and foundation as infielder that will improve with more active feet.  Offensively hits from a balanced set up with a short stride and average bat speed.  A short path that is in and out of the zone. Pull type hitter right now with potential for ga-to-gap.  Ran a 7.55 60 yard dash.  Interesting prospect on the mound.  From a ¾ arm slot have quick arm speed and a sound arm action pitching at 81 mph.  Has a controlled delivery with some effort and rhythm.  Fastball has late run and command.  Breaking ball has 10-to-4 action and potential to be a power pitch.  Changeup has near fastball arm speed at 71 mph.  Interesting prospect to keep an eye on from the 2019 class.
