1/27/19

Body Type: 6-foot, 205-pound stocky, strong frame. Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Uptempo delivery that doesn’t require a ton of effort. Short, clean arm action through a high-¾ slot. Fastball: 88-89 mph. Comes out hot and stays heavy through the zone. Could see him gaining a few more mphs through spring/summer. Curveball: 70-71 mph. 11/5 shaped breaker that has depth with some sharpness to it. Changeup: 76-79 mph. Playable offering that has some dive to it. Slider: 76-78 mph. The better of the two breaking balls on this day. Spins it well, giving it late/hard action across the zone. Pitchability: Showed the ability to locate each of his offerings in the zone. Role: Could see multiple roles with a more natural fit as a reliever presently.

6/28/18

6-foot, 190-pound primary pitcher sat 82-83 while touching 85 mph from a high 3/4 arm slot with three strikeouts in three innings of work. Also displayed a curveball with 11/5 rotation at 63-66, a sharper breaking slider at 72-73 and a seldom used changeup at 62-63. The right-handed hitter ran a 7.03 60-yard dash and registered an 85 mph bat exit velocity. He starts his swing from a square stance and initiates his lower half with a short, leg-hang stride. Works hard to stay inside the baseball and displayed a solid feel for the barrel in BP. Showcased developing defensive skills as a middle infielder with 82 mph arm strength across the diamond.

4/23/18

6-foot, 190 pounder threw to only two batters in mop up roll on this day. However, fastball sat 84-85 mph with late life and arm side run, up from touching 83 when last seen in fall. Leedham continues to project as interesting follow in Class of 2020

11/19/17

6-foot, 180-pound physical RHP/SS worked out as two-way player on this day. However, his significant next level potential appears to be on the hill. Leedham worked out of a mid 3/4 arm slot with a knee to chest leg kick and substantial hip coil. Despite high leg kick excellent balance was maintained throughout and delivery was consistently repeated. There was tendency to land excessively closed with stride foot creating crossfire action. FB sat 80-82 mph touching 83 mph with considerable arm-side run and sink. Slider thrown at 68-69 mph showed a slurvy action with 11-4 shape. Change up at 68-70 mph was thrown with good sell and moderate arm-side fade. Consistent with solid repeatable mechanics all offerings were commanded well. Leedham is a definite follow as a 2020 arm with considerable upside.

Offensively, Leedham initiates swing from a neutral set up with lift-and-replace stride. There is a tendency to land on a stiff front leg with limited weight shift and early locking of front knee. There is also early hand leak and dropping of hands leading to limiting separation. Leedham would benefit from being more aggressive in weight shift away from hands while landing softer on front side prior to hip turn.

Defensively, greater commitment to working out front and bottom up as well as shortening throwing motion as middle infielder will be necessary to be considered a two-way prospect moving forward.

9/09/17

6-foot, 180-pound primary pitcher flashed a live arm out of a high 3/4 arm slot sitting 78-80 while topping at 82 mph. Fastball displayed some arm side run and 61 mph changeup was thrown with similar arm speed. Also displayed a slider at 63-64 and a looping curveball at 57-58. The right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and initiates his swing with a lift-and-replace stride. Swing dominated by upper half action resulted in consistent line drives in batting practice with a bat exit velocity of 80 mph. Ran a 7.40 60-yard dash and displayed 79 mph arm strength across the diamond defensively.
