3/5/18
A 6-foot, 190-pound athletic build with strength. On the mound, works from a moderate tempo delivery with a high and smooth leg kick. Arm action is short and quick in the back before coming through a high-¾ slot with some quickness and deception. Fastball sits 77-80 mph with consistent arm-side run, thrown mostly at the bottom of the zone. Curveball ranges 69-71 with 1/7 shape and some late depth. Also mixes in a changeup with some arm side fade. Overall, Gaines was able to keep a very talented Broken Arrow lineup at bay for four solid innings with deception and the ability to mix pitches. Gains also stands out on the offensive side of the ball where he shows some barrel strength and is an advanced runner, hitting in the lead off sport for Southmoore.
