John Poccia, RHP, Red Bank Catholic, 2016
7/16/15 – Poccia is an athletic 5-foot-9, 165 pounds. He is athletic on the mound and shows that athleticism within his mechanics. Poccia moves dynamically down the slope and keeps solid direction. He only occasionally rotates early cutting off extension. Most of the time, however, he is over his front knee and well into extension when he releases the baseball. Poccia’s pitches from a ¾ arm slot and generates some arm side run on his 78-82 mile-per-hour fastball. He throws what appears to be two different breaking pitches; curveball and slider. He throws his curveball for strikes at an alarming rate. His curveball has slightly above average spin and has slurve shape at 67-69 MPH. His slider has well above average spin and has late bite at 71-72 MPH. The slider serves as a good out pitch. Perhaps Poccia’s most impressive pitch at the event was his changeup which he threw with deceptive fastball hand speed. When he kept on top of this pitch, it has late diving action out of the zone at 74-76 MPH. He filled the zone well with three pitches and used his late biting slider out of the zone for strike three. He has very good pitchability.
4/16/16 - Poccia is undersized on the mound at 5-foot-10, but has an uncanny abilitiy to fill the bottom of the strike zone with fastballs. He was sitting at 81-82 on this night, but worked in and out and got many swings and misses on his FB. SL at 71-72, it looks like a fastball coming out of his ¾ arm slot, but breaks at the last second. He got many half-swings on this pitch simply by its deception and late break.
