Notes

Comments

2/10/24
Ari Bethea, Collierville (TN), 2025 Tennessee
Positional Profile: RHP/OF
Body: 6-1, 197-pounds. Highly projectable, proportional frame w/ well developed strength and athleticism.
Delivery: Works quickly through windup with a step behind the rubber leading into his leglift. Uses lower half extremely well with an explosive push down the mound.
Arm Action: RH. Great arm talent with an easy repeatable motion, with power over the top.
FB: T92, 90-92 mph. Plays much harder than it reads due to an insane 23 inches of induced vertical break. Is able to put the pitch wherever he wants. T2531, 2422 average rpm.
CB: 78-79 mph. Elite shape on the ability to local and manipulate it however he wants. Great spin rate and horizontal break make it nearly unhittable. T2611, 2507 average rpm.
