LHP Miller Riggins (2021, Kennesaw State) set the tone on the mound for Houston in their five inning 10-0 mercy rule victory in their final game of the Hoover Bucs Classic. Listed at 6-3, 205 pounds, the Kennesaw State signee opened up firing a heavy dosage of 87-89 mph fastballs and overpowering opposing hitters in the process. He’s got a quick arm with intent to drive the fastball through the zone and by hitters. Mixed in a deceptive 80-82 mph slider thrown for strikes with minimal movement, but enough to miss barrels working off the fastball. The talented southpaw only faced trouble in the second inning due to two walks, but quickly locked back in to shut down the threat. From there, he was in cruise control, tossing five innings, allowing two hits, no runs, three walks, and punching out eight.

LHP, (2021) Houston, TN. 6-foot-3, 205-pound proportional frame. Above average on the mound, where he showed quick arm speed, he had a ¾ arm angle and a quick arm action. Drop-and-drive type pitcher who shows some effort. Displays even shoulders and consistent balance point. Lands square with a recoil finish. Sat with his fastball at 84-86 mph and topped out at 86 mph; showed sinking action and consistent control with tight movement. Threw a 2/8 curveball (70-73) that showed control low in the zone and tight action. Showed fading action and some control on his changeup (71-74).

6-3, 200-pound lefty has tall, projectable frame with intriguing three-pitch mix.  Has been 77-81 this past year, but has shown big jumps leading up to summer 2020.  After cleaning up some lower half issues, Riggins fastball has jumped up to mid 80s, topping at 87 with good life out of high 3/4 slot.  Simple, repeatable delivery w/ quick arm. Medium downer CB flashed proper shape, late bite, depth.  CH w/ arm-speed, fade and sink.  Around the zone w/ 3-pitch mix.  Would have been a breakout performance in 2020 season, but heads into the summer as red hot rising lefty option.

6-3, 200-pound lefty shows a prototypical pitcher frame w/ intriguing 3-pitch mix.  Tall, athletic frame w/ present lower half strength, some physical projection remaining.  Pitches from a full wind-up, which includes him coming set like he is out of the stretch and into a rocker step, into an over the top to H ¾ release from the middle of the rubber.  Simple, repeatable delivery w/ quick arm.  Just scratching the surface of his velocity potential.  Learning to get lower half involved, front-leg driven.  Straight FB shows occasional short cut.  Medium downer flashed proper shape, late bite, depth.  Occasionally loopy.  CH w/ arm-speed, fade and sink.  Around the zone w/ 3-pitch mix.

7/24/18

Max FB: 81, FB: 77-81, CB: 62-65, CH: 73-74
6-foot-3, 200-pound, LHP generated 6 swing and misses on 17 swings.  Tall, sturdy frame w/ high-waist, some present lower half strength, projectable.  Has just scratched the surface of his frame potential.  Pitches from a hybrid full-windup into H ¾ release from the first base side of the rubber.  Comes set like he is pitching from the stretch and then begins his full wind-up with a step to the side.  Back-foot stays set throughout, learning to consistently drive off of it.  Slight cocking action in back before coming through the circle.  Angle and downhill plane.  FB shows short arm-side run.  Medium downer CB is loose, gradual breaker, flashes proper shape and rotation.  CH w/ arm-speed, fade and sink.  Sprayed the zone on this day, projects to command w/ reps.  Swing and misses were spread out pretty evenly on his 3 pitch mix.
