8/17/21

Physical: 6-foot-1, 160 pounds; Lean, athletic build.

Pitching: Playfair uses an arm side setup while using a side step. Mid chest leg drive with a full coil away from the plate. Has a long stride landing inline with the plate. Long arm swing while showing some scap load, working through a low 3/4 slot. Square to the plate with finish. FB: Peak velo of 85 MPH, while sitting 83-85 MPH; life through the zone. CB: 65-68 MPH; slurve  like action.  CH: 72-74 MPH; fading action. 

8/10/21

Physical: The recent St. Bonaventure commit stands 6-foot-1, 160lbs with long, projectable proportions. 

Pitching: RHP - Taller start off the far left side of the rubber with consistent pace in the delivery. Got to a higher, hip-coiled stack hiding the ball on his move down the slope with a quick stab in the back. High ¾ slot on the way through with extension out front, landing into a firm front-side at release. The FB ranged from 80-82 mph and featured good spin traits (2300+) for strikes to arm-side. Mixed a lateral, sweeping 63-65 mph CB on a similar 11/5 tilt and then faded a 70-72 mph CH with killed action out of the hand (low spin). Feel for three and attacked early/often.


6/30/21

Physical: Lengthy, projectable 6-foot-1, 160lb frame with ready athleticism on the bump. 

Pitching: RHP - Started off the far left side of the rubber with above-average tempo in the delivery. Sudden draw into a fluid H ¾ slot, releasing quickly on the front-side while blocking off the front side properly. Held direction, landing an 83-86 mph FB for strikes at a 44% clip (T2319rpms) and mixed a sharp, sweeping curveball at 65-67 mph (T19 inches HM via Trackman). A short-fading 74-76 mph CH tunneled effectively out of the same FB slot at 1616rpms.


3/21/21

Physical: 6-foot-1, 160 lb wiry frame

Pitching: Builds momentum well with a turn on the leg lift before accelerating down the mound in line getting quality hip-shoulder separation finishing against a strong front side. Arm works quick out of the glove pulling back before getting to a clean 3/4 release

FB: Has life out of the hand flashing ride through the top of the zone. CB: 11-5 shape with up to -9" vertical drop and 7" horizontal movement. CH: Flashes arm side fade. 

7/06/20

The 2022 right handed pitcher displayed a repeatable delivery. Playfair worked with three pitches during live game action at the 2019 Fall Top Prospect games. Every pitch moves for Playfair, especially his FB with late arm side run. FB peaked at 80 MPH. CB range was 63-65 MPH and CH ranges from 64-67 MPH. The 2022 RHP throws from a mid 3/4 arm slot. Playfair is a must follow as he continues to devleop.
