Scouting Notes: Not hard to see the upside here. A 6-foot-6 lefty whose fastball up to 84mph plays up due to downhill plane and the almost 10 feet of extension he creates down the mound according to @trackmanBB. A guy that's been a high follow for awhile who turned in his top performance to date.
Fastball: 81-84mph.
Fastball Spin Rate: 1703-2001.
Breaking Ball: 68-71mph.
Breaking Ball Spin Rate: 1843-2001.

Body Type: 6-foot-6, 175-pound lengthy frame.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Long arm action with a high leg kick but drive knee shoots out past the toes. Lands slightly closed off. More velocity left in the tank.
Fastball: 80-83mph. Slight glove side movement which can be adjusted within grip.
Curveball: 63-67mph. Sharp pitch with 1/7 movement. Above average offering if thrown in the zone consistently.  
Pitchability: In the zone some of the time.
Additional Comments: Would expect such a tall athlete to be uncoordinated but that is not the case. Has good control of lengthy body.

High upside arm in the 2021 class. 6-foot-5, southpaw with long limbs and room to add. Tosses an easy fastball that was up to 82 mph. With his length and extension ball really gets on hitters. Will slow arm a bit on the breaking ball but the pitch shows signs of growing into a well above average offering.

6/26/18

The most projectable arm we saw on the day. 6-foot-5, long limbed lefty with very high waist and endless projection left on frame. Extremely loose arm through a high-¾ slot. Projects for more velocity, presently sitting in the 79-82 mph range with late life through the zone. Breaking ball is a playable offering on a 1/7 shape with some downward bite to it. Also has a changeup that he is working on. High follow that will attract D1 attention.

1/21/18

A long-limbed left-handed pitching prospect with room to add strength. Ballas works at a moderate tempo, delivery is smooth and repeatable. Uses a long arm action working through a ¾ slot. The fastball works downhill with late cutting action while sitting 75-78 mph. Best secondary offering was a 1/7 breaking ball, at 62-65 mph the pitch has swing and miss potential at the high school level. Also, showed a changeup that sat 63-64 mph with occasional cut. At 6’4” Ballas is a must follow through the spring/summer seasons.
