Aggressive and athletic at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, Batka tied for the day’s top fastball at 95 mph. He sat mostly 94 and showed some late cut with his 4-seamer. He tends to slow his arm on his 83-86 mph change-up, but it did show some sink/tail. He also had some feel for a 76-81 mph slider with fair depth, but lacked much control of the offering. Overall, Batka is more projection than polish at this point, but the athleticism and upside are obvious for this true freshman and his future is bright.
