Laskey comes through a 3/4 slot showing a little bit of effort, but nothing alarming, the ball comes out of his hand easy, sitting 86-89 with some late-depth. Shows some deception to his changeup at 80 (maybe a touch too hard) and his slider flashed short, tight break at 79-80. Showed well out in Long Beach (Area Codes) this summer and will be a close follow this spring on many teams radar.
4/30/16 - Laskey stands at 6-foot-2, 190-pounds with a very lean and athletic looking body. Clean mechanics and arm action, Laskey starts slow in his windup, lifts his leg and shows a slight back leg crouch. Gets his gloveside up for good shoulder tilt, and shows good downward extension on release. Never pulling off or landing at one side of the mound, Laskey shows good body control, even later in the game as his pitch count started to climb. Was 90-92 early on with a hard, sharp slider at 80-82. Very late break on SL, was seen by many halfhearted swings by batters. Hides ball well, SL looks like FB coming out of his hand. In the 6th and 7th his FB velo dropped to 85-87, but SL velo remained mostly the same at 80-81. Able to throw offspeed for strikes in down counts.

9-5-2018:Strong, athletic frame at six-foot-three, 205 pounds. Compact arm action to a three-quarter slot produces above average arm speed. Repeats a simple delivery, landing soft and on-line with good balance and extension out front. Best pitch is a plus changeup. Deceptive. Thrown with fastball arm speed and showing hard sink. Consistent swing/miss out pitch at 81-84 mph. Fastball ranged from 89-92 mph, mostly 90. Sat 88-89 in the fifth inning. Average life with near average control. On this day showed very little feel for a 78-80 mph curveball, well below average pitch. However, the pitch was much closer to average this spring during my mid-May look against North Carolina. Overall, Laskey is a potential three-pitch lefty with a starter delivery, arm action, frame and athleticism. With a solid junior season this spring, he will likely receive early round consideration next June. (Seifert)
