6/28/21

Physical: Strong, projectable 6-foot-3, 190lb frame with some athleticism and feel found on the bump. 

Pitching: RHP - Started off the middle/left side of the rubber showing funk to the delivery; short side rocker into a higher, hip-coiled stack position, breaking early with a subtle stab before rotating violently and athletically into footstrike at H ¾ slot. Kept hitters off time, pounding the bottom of the zone at a heavy 80-82 mph (50% zone rate via Trackman) and added a sharp, swing/miss 66-68 mph CB at 2320rpms (21 inches HM max) that dodged barrels in advantage counts. Mixed a solid 76-78 mph CH as the third offering, showing deception out of the hand and good sell.

Gleason had an impressive outing at the 2019 Fall Top Prospect Games. The 6-foot-2 right handed pitcher displayed a repeatable delivery. Gleason pitches from a mid 3/4 arm slot and natural whip. FB peaked at 78 MPH and showed feel for a CH down in the zone. The 2022 graduate has upside and is a must follow. 

2/11/18

Gleason stands in at 6-foot-0, 130-pounds with an athletic frame. Ran a 8.24 – 60. Offensively- Righty sets up square to the pitcher with a good trigger to get into the hitting position. Tends to drop hands and dive over the plate, which would be corrected by being more upright and keeping the eye level the same. Does make consistent contact and will be more effective with added strength and reps as he gets older. Recorded an exit velocity of 67 MPH. Defensively- Comes through the baseball well. Good throwing motion throughout the crow hop. Could use more of a higher arm slot, and downhill throwing motion from the outfield. Moves well to the ball with good footwork. Recorded a positional arm velocity of 72 MPH. Pitching- Sets up in the middle of the rubber with a high leg kick into his power position. Gets good separation with a smooth push down the mound. Shows loose arm action with a low ¾ arm slot using repeatable mechanics. Fastball range was 69-70 MPH and peaked at 70 MPH with arm side run. Change up showed good sinking action and was 64-65 MPH.
