6-foot, 170-pound two-way prospect has been a steady climber throughout the summer.  Lean, projectable frame with good athleticism.  Featured mostly a high spin FB in the mid 80s (Max: 2430 rpm | Avg: 2158 rpm via Trackman) throughout the summer paired with 1/7 CB in the upper 60s. Mixing speeds and tunneling elevated FBs with downer CB, helped Fortner twirl a no-hitter at the PBR Kentucky limited series.  Fortner has continued to work and now sits 84-87 T88 w/ a touch more sharpness in his breaking ball at 67-70.  On the other side, provides versatility at 3B/2B and a solid bat that draws consistent hard contact and plenty of bat speed.
