Saxon Roberts (2024, Independence) Roberts was phenomenal in his outing against a talented lineup in Ravenwood that has been hitting a lot of good arms. He attacked the strike zone consistently, while getting ahead of hitters with the fastball and putting them away with a firm slider. His fastball was up considerably from two weeks ago and sat 89-90 for his outing, while touching 92 a considerable amount of times throughout the game. Slider clocked in between 78-81 with sharp tilt and depth that got under hitters for multiple swing and misses. The number #1 player in the 2024 class of Tennessee was lights out over the course of 5 innings where he would finish with 6 K’s, albeit with 6 walks that he must continue to cut down on. He should start steadily seeing more professional scouts at his games and will have a decision to make come this summer with the route he wants to take.

Saxon Roberts (Independence, 2024) Roberts, our #1 player in the 2024 Tennessee class gave us our first look at him in the spring on a very frigid night in the 30’s. The fastball/curveball combination was working early and often as he generated swing and misses throughout his outing. The 1st inning was really the only time he got into some trouble as he started the game with a leadoff walk before giving up back to back singles for 1 run. That was the extent of the damage as he would retire the next 15 batters straight. The velocity was down from where he usually sits as he was 89-91 mph in the first before settling in at 86-88 mph. He isn’t 100% just yet as he gets back from some stiffness but expect the velocity to steadily climb as the season progresses. The arm comes with some late natural crossfire action with a fastball that runs away from right-handers. The breaking-ball was firm nonetheless in the upper 70’s but we have seen that pitch in the low 80’s often. He still had a really quality outing where he would rack up 10 K’s on only 2 walks, while giving up those two hits in the first. Professional scouts will still have their eyes on him as the weather starts getting consistently warmer and still showed why he is considered one of the best arm talents in this class nationally.

6-foot-3, 188-pound right-handed pitcher, strong, sturdy build, projectable, plenty of room to fill out. Power arm. Short, compact arm action, comes out of an over-the-top slot, some effort. Inconsistent command, but when in the zone, both fastball and slider are swing and miss. Will get batters to chase at this level with many not able to catch up to his stuff. Fastball sat 88-91, touched 93 in the early innings, heavy, and ate run action, swing and miss. Slider, 81-85, sharp downer action, throw with intent, swing and miss pitch.
 

 

Touching 95 mph during his first inning on the mound, RHP Saxon Roberts (Independence HS, TN; Auburn) also spun a plus slider in the low-80s at over 2,500 rpm. At 6-foot-4, 200 pounds, there’s more in the tank with his loose arm and strong frame.
