6.25.13 Blakely had one of the most impressive performances at Midwest Futures Tryouts.  Beyond his ability to catch, Blakely hoped on the mound and sat 87-88mph on the bump. The lanky 6-foot-2, 175-pound righty has a good frame with broader shoulders.  Arm was lightning quick.  Smoother delivery with more in the tank.  Breaking ball spun well but backed up a bit.  12/6 shape (68-69mph)  Threw change up well as well. Sold it well (72-73mph)
Blakely has a chance to be really special. Behind the plate, his arm is clearly his biggest separator. He threw consistent pop times around 2.0. Sits low in his stance. Has soft hands behind the dish. At the plate he shows good balance and an athletic setup.  He also runs well at 7.2 in the 60 for a catcher.His bat explodes through the zone after he uses a smooth easy load.  Was willing to use the whole field and go the other way on occasion but he did favor his pull side.  High upside as a ballplayer.  The jury is still out on whether he will be a pitcher or a catcher but either way he will be highly sought after in Michigan.
